Fuzz testing with zzuf

"We can thank stupid users for the fuzz testing craze"

This is garbage. Fuzz testing isn't needed or popular because of stupid users, it is needed because of decades of poor security practices by developers and educators. Suggesting that accepting invalid input is the user's fault is arrogant, foolish, and detrimental to both the Linux community and the security community.
