"A new word for what in the 1960s we called "testing"."

Rather a new tool called fuzzing to use in something still called testing, according to the Wiki anyway.

"Fuzzing or fuzz testing is an automated software testing technique that involves providing invalid, unexpected, or random data as inputs to a computer program.".
