VuRLE: Automatic Vulnerability Detection and Repair by Learning from Examples [chapter]

Siqi Ma, Ferdian Thung, David Lo, Cong Sun, Robert H. Deng
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To assist developers to deal with multiple types of vulnerabilities, we propose a new tool, called VuRLE, for automatic detection and repair of vulnerabilities.  ...  VuRLE 1) learns transformative edits and their contexts (i.e., code characterizing edit locations) from examples of vulnerable codes and their corresponding repaired codes; 2) clusters similar transformative  ...  To generalize the patterns, VuRLE abstracts concrete identifier names and types appearing in the patterns into placeholders.  ...

Consistent change propagation within models

Roland Kretschmer, Djamel Eddine Khelladi, Roberto Erick Lopez-Herrejon, Alexander Egyed
2020 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
Our approach not only suggests changes to repair a given inconsistency but also changes to repair inconsistencies caused by the aforementioned repair.  ...  A comparison with two versioned models shows that our approach identifies actual repair sequences that developers had chosen.  ...  Those approaches come up with abstract repairs, which can be transformed to concrete repairs by using [13, 23] .  ...

A Case for Automated Debugging Using Data Structure Repair

Muhammad Zubair Malik, Khalid Ghori, Bassem Elkarablieh, Sarfraz Khurshid
2009 2009 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering  
A key challenge to embodying this insight into a mechanical technique arises due to the difference in the concrete level of the program states and the abstract level of the program code: repair actions  ...  We envision a tool-chain where a data structure repair tool generates repair logs that are used by a fault localization tool and a repair abstraction tool that apply in synergy to not only identify the  ...  We envision a non-conventional use of data structure repair in this paper, namely for automated debugging through a transformation of concrete repair actions into source code which represents a likely  ...

Repair with On-The-Fly Program Analysis [chapter]

Robert Könighofer, Roderick Bloem
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our approach computes repair candidates and refines them based on counterexamples. It can be used with various verification techniques and specification formats to check a candidate's correctness.  ...  This paper presents a novel automatic repair approach for incorrect programs. It applies formal methods and analyzes program behavior only on demand.  ...  The concrete values of the template parameters k can be mapped back to concrete expressions using the repair templates. This gives a candidate program that can be checked.  ...

Path-Based Program Repair

Heinz Riener, Rüdiger Ehlers, Görschwin Fey
2015 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
We propose a path-based approach to program repair for imperative programs.  ...  In contrast to prior work, our approach is complete for programs with finitely many control-flow paths, i.e., the program is repaired if and only if it can be repaired at the specified fault location.  ...  We claim that automated bit-width abstraction refinement for synthesis is in reach such that a synthesize-and-generalize approach is possible: first bitwidths are abstracted to a small number of BDD variables  ...

Example-Based Vulnerability Detection and Repair in Java Code [article]

Ying Zhang, Ya Xiao, Md Mahir Asef Kabir, Danfeng Yao, Na Meng
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To overcome both limitations, we created Seader-an example-based approach to detect and repair security-API misuses.  ...  With these patterns, we applied SEADER to a program benchmark that has 86 known vulnerabilities. Seader detected vulnerabilities with 95% precision, 72% recall, and82% F-score.  ...  Meanwhile, the secure code S invokes the same API with key-a generated unpredictable value.  ...

A Feature-Based Classification of Model Repair Approaches

Nuno Macedo, Tiago Jorge, Alcino Cunha
2017 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
This paper proposes a feature-based classification system for model repair techniques, based on an systematic review of previously proposed approaches.  ...  As the popularity and application scenarios of MDE expanded, a variety of different techniques were proposed to address these tasks in specific contexts.  ...  Unlike Badger, where a plan may suggest a concrete value to be assigned to some property, here all repair actions are abstract.  ...

Counterexample-Guided Repair for Symbolic-Geometric Action Abstractions [article]

Wil Thomason, Hadas Kress-Gazit
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We propose an approach to automatically construct and continuously improve a symbolic abstraction of a robot action via observations of the robot performing the action.  ...  This approach, called automatic abstraction repair, allows symbolic abstractions to be initially incorrect or incomplete and converge toward a correct model over time.  ...  Generalizing individual observations will improve the observation efficiency of our approach to abstraction repair, reduce the need to store a large set of observations to compute abstraction error, and  ...

Generating attribute grammar-based bidirectional transformations from rewrite rules

Pedro Martins, João Saraiva, João Paulo Fernandes, Eric Van Wyk
2014 Proceedings of the ACM SIGPLAN 2014 Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Program Manipulation - PEPM '14  
These inverted rewrite rules can then be extended with additional rules based on characteristics of the source language grammar and forward transformations to create, under certain circumstances, a total  ...  In this paper we show how rewrite rules (with non-linear right hand sides) that specify a forward/get transformation can be inverted to specify a partial backward/put transformation.  ...  To address this, the get transformation adds links on generated abstract (sub) trees that refer back to the respective concrete (sub) tree that generated them.  ...

Automatic Software Repair

Martin Monperrus
2018 ACM Computing Surveys  
This article presents a survey on automatic software repair. Automatic software repair consists of automatically finding a solution to software bugs without human intervention.  ...  It provides a novel and structured overview of the diversity of bug oracles and repair operators used in the literature.  ...  The prediction also uses "interesting value mapping pairs" (IVMP) which are concrete values that enable test cases to pass (aka value replacement [67] and angelic values [25, 34] ).  ...

Deductive Program Repair [chapter]

Etienne Kneuss, Manos Koukoutos, Viktor Kuncak
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present an approach to program repair and its application to programs with recursive functions over unbounded data types.  ...  Our approach formulates program repair in the framework of deductive synthesis that uses existing program structure as a hint to guide synthesis.  ...  This concrete output is then abstracted to various possible expressions to yield candidate repairs, which are filtered with bounded verification. In their approach, Chandra et al.  ...
