It seems that they won again

My previous post about creators of Go, who think different, ended with a phrase Does it mean that they right again? I don’t know, we will see…. And now we can say for sure that they were right again.

If you didn’t hear it, then you should read this post. It’s an incident report from Cloudflare regarding significant vulnerability discovered in their service. But they didn’t mention the most important part, how it was found.

A detailed description of the issue can be found here. If we will read it, then we will see a phrase ... I was working on a corpus distillation project .... It means that preparation for fuzzing helped to uncover this issue. It clearly shows a value of fuzzing and advantages that it can bring to the Go language and to the whole Go ecosystem.

People who think different won again :)
