Abstract
We present Dfuzzer, a fully automated tool for fuzz testing programs
communicating via D-Bus. D-Bus is the prevalent modern mechanism for an
inter-process communication in the GNU/Linux ecosystem. Using D-Bus introspection, Dfuzzer is able to
acquire the structure of the parameters expected by the target program. It can
then generate ballast data respecting this structure, so the target program
starts using such data incorrectly if it does not carefully validate it. We
have found numerous bugs in various parts of the GNU/Linux operating system,
including GNOME Shell and systemd.
