# Summary
# While fuzzing a stack based buffer overflow was found in libIEC61850 (the
# open-source library for the IEC 61850 protocols) in prepareGooseBuffer in
# goose/goose_publisher.c

## Steps to reproduce

$ ./goose_publisher_example crash_goosecr_stack_smash_overflow_aaaaaaaaa
Using interface crash_goosecr_stack_smash_overflow_aaaaaaaaa
*** stack smashing detected ***: <unknown> terminated
Aborted
$
