Bleeping Computer: Google Experiment Tests Top 5 Browsers, Finds Safari Riddled With Security Bugs

Bleeping Computer: Google Experiment Tests Top 5 Browsers, Finds Safari Riddled With Security Bugs. “The Project Zero team at Google has created a new tool for testing browser DOM engines and has unleashed it on today’s top five browsers, finding most bugs in Apple’s Safari. The tool — named Domato — is a fuzzer, a security testing toolkit that feeds a software application with random data and analyzes the output for abnormalities. Google engineer Ivan Fratric created Domato with the goal of fuzzing DOM engines, the browser components that read HTML code and organize it into the DOM (Document Object Model), which is then ‘painted’ and displayed inside the browser window that human users view on their screens.” Just keep in mind that the test was run by Google.
