With their 20 combined years in offensive cyber security and digital forensics, Chris and Kyle cover a new topic each week in a LIVE video chat.

This Week's EpisodeFuzzing WordmapIn today's episode, you'll learn how hackers, security researchers, and software developers use a technique called fuzzing to find coding errors and security loopholes in software. Fuzzing works by inputting large amounts of random data to the targeted system in an attempt to make it crash. With these crashes, it’s possible to identify vulnerabilities which can enable attackers to degrade system performance, escalate privileges, bypass authentication, or even provide remote code execution.
