- March 2019 : Dr. Sergey Mechtaev has been awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Outstanding Dissertation Award. The title of his PhD dissertationis is "Semantic Program Repair". He was supported through the TSUNAMi project and finished his PhD from NUS.
- November 23 2018 : AFLSmart: Smart Greybox Fuzzing has been developed in our team to hunt code vulnerabilities. AFLSmart is good at testing applications for common security flaws, such as buffer overflow errors, that can be targeted by attackers for denial of service or remote code execution exploits. AFLSmart can detect twice as many bugs as AFL over a 24 hour period and since it was put into use fuzzing a handful of open-source software libraries, the software has uncovered a total of 42 zero-day vulnerabilities and has banked 17 CVE-listed holes.
- July 17 2018 : Publication on Cryptography and Security - oo7: Low-overhead Defense against Spectre Attacks via Binary Analysis.
- June 2017 : A spinoff called “Zilliqa Research” has launched a new blockchain protocol based on secure sharding, derived from a paper that appeared at ACM CCS'16 and it is one of the intellectual contributions out of Tsunami project.
- February 21-22 2017 :The 2nd Singapore Cyber Security R&D Conference (SG-CRC 2017) which was held at the campus of National Universirty of Singapore is featured in NUS News and The Strait Times.
- February 19-21 2017 : Student Workshop on Singapore Cyber Security R&D Conference 2017 was held at the campus of National University of Singapore.
- January 23 2017: AFLFast and other fuzzing tools that have been developed in our team have exposed several high-profile bugs in the wide-spread Linux utilities (GNU Coreutils) before they were distributed with the official next release. AFLFast actually found more than 30 crashes in the widespread GNU Binutils and Coreutils. Our research is discussed in the recent blog post of the Coreutils package maintainer Padraig Brady.

- December 2015 : Abhik Roychoudhury's perspective paper "Formula-based Program Debugging" to appear in Communications of ACM. The paper presents a perspective on new directions in program debugging and patching.
- November 2015 : Visit Dexecure, a start-up company launched by Prateek Saxena
- January 2015 : TSUNAMi project starts for a period of five years.
