There was a post earlier today on Daily Dave about a DoS vulnerability in Chrome which supposedly was caused by a Microsoft runtime library when trying to access URL schemes that are bogus. It reminded me of this:
No matter how hard the dragon tries to break out of 2D and bite it’s tail, it’s very much stuck in 2D and doesn’t realize it can’t quite get out of it. It’s pretty damn hard to build anything sufficiently complex when bugs seem to just emerge. Quoting Bruce Schneier, “machines breakdown, systems have bugs“. Godëlian, don’t you think?
