I found this article by Phil Johnson on IT World describing 10 “Superbugs”, basically ten software bugs that for a number of different reasons took years to have fixed.
It got me thinking. Have you ever come across a software bug that for some reason was ignored, or went undetected for a long time? Does this happen often?I can’t imagine anyone would come across a bug that would beat the 37 year old OpenBSD’s head bug?
Now that would be hard to beat!December 10, 2014 at 10:34 pm #6075@punkmikOnly available when logged in
As we have an accountancy engine we touch most if not all parts of the system on a regular basis. This means that often bugs that have some sort of work around get left behind.
It is a trade off of cost to fix, time the workaround takes and the quality of the system. It is a shame but cannot be avoided. Who knows if there are any lurking covered up my small bugs currently?
