Hi Juraj,

Unfortunately, there is nothing in the roadmap of JBroFuzz regarding
actual support of fuzzing AMF actionscript messages on the wire. This
is the first such request that we are receiving. If we do get more
requests like this, we would have to reconsider.

Having said that, provided you settle on your particular method of
choice for putting AMF actionscript messages on the wire, you can you
use the java APIs that JBroFuzz offers for more advanced fuzzing.
Examples of this can be found at:

The reporting functionality should be easy to replicate even if the
fuzzing data request and responses. You just need to place individual
numbered files in a directory where jbrofuzz saves fuzzing data. Each
file needs to follow the format below (comments start with <-

720 <- response time in ms
200 <- status code received back
0000000002 <- file name

Also on the cc, Jon Rose, for visibility within OWASP.

Hope the above is of value!

Thank you,
