The injection of software faults (i.e., bugs) by mutating the binary executable code of a program enables the experimental dependability evaluation of systems for which the source code is not available. This approach requires that programming constructs used in the source code should be identified by looking only at the binary code, since the injection is performed at this level. Unfortunately, it is a difficult task to inject faults in the binary code that correctly emulate software defects in… CONTINUE READING
