Awasu » History’s Worst Software Bugs

Just what I need as we enter the final round of testing for 2.2: Wired's take on the 10 worst software bugs of all time (so far).

While multi-million dollar space probes exploding are pretty bad, bodgy operating systems written by amateur programmers that cause lethal doses of radiation to be delivered to patients are in a whole 'nother league. Even worse, a bunch of doctors took advantage of a bug in a software program that calculated how to deliver radiation doses to patients, not realizing that the bug was, well, buggy :bigshock:

Certainly puts things into perspective...

Have your say
