Boofuzz is a fork of and the successor to the venerable Sulley_ fuzzing framework. Besides numerous bug fixes, boofuzz aims for extensibility. The goal: fuzz everything.

Sulley has been the preeminent open source fuzzer for some time, but has fallen out of maintenance.


Like Sulley, boofuzz incorporates all the critical elements of a fuzzer:

  • Easy and quick data generation.
  • Instrumentation – AKA failure detection.
  • Target reset after failure.
  • Recording of test data.

Unlike Sulley, boofuzz also features:

  • Online documentation_.
  • Support for arbitrary communications mediums.
  • Built-in support for serial fuzzing, ethernet- and IP-layer, UDP broadcast.
  • Better recording of test data -- consistent, thorough, clear.
  • Test result CSV export.
  • Extensible instrumentation/failure detection.
  • Much easier install experience!
  • Far fewer bugs.

Sulley is affectionately named after the giant teal and purple creature from Monsters Inc. due to his fuzziness. Boofuzz is likewise named after the only creature known to have scared Sulley himself: Boo!
