BugId - automated bug analysis

Vulnerability Development

Whether you are looking for vulns, or handling vulns reported by others, at some point you're going to have a repro that crashes an application and you're going to want to know as much as possible about the bug it's triggering, spending as little effort and time as possible doing this. What you want is automated bug detection, analysis, triaging and bucketizing. This is what BugId was designed to do and this talk will explain how it works. BugId is a python script that runs a Windows application in a debugger, using page-heap to detect memory corruption and out-of-bound access early. It handles exceptions and reports bugs not as "access violation" but as "heap use-after-free", "heap out-of-bounds read", "NULL pointer dereference", etc. It will tell you how big the relevant memory block is and the offset at which the code is trying to access it. It will tell you if the bug is likely to be exploitable and what an attacker might need to do to exploit it. It can collect a large number of details and write these into a human readable, HTML formatted report. Since I am finding more than one unique bug a day with my fuzzing framework, I've integrated it in my fuzzing framework to triage and bucketize my bugs. It allows me to prioritize the interesting vulnerabilities and jump-starts analysis by telling me most of the basic information I need before I've even started a debugger.

Yes! I've been following Skylined work and it's simply brilliant. It would be amazing to see him live showing us BugID, apparently, a time saver when triaging memory corruption bugs.


Looks like a very good talk!


Sounds like a very useful tool for bug hunters. I'm a fan of everything that makes vulnerability analysis easier and quicker.


Awesome tool. I use it daily


Awesome tool, Already using and looking forward to know more about it.


Awsome tool. Expect you to talk about the fuzzer method
