Bugs & Viruses 1983. The year of the IBM PC XT, the Apple Lisa, Pioneer 10 leaving the solar system, and Hooters opening up shop in Florida. It's also the birthyear of a 25 year old BSD bug, squashed only a few days ago.

Well the test case was quite complex, wasn't it?

So I'm not surprised that this kind of things wasn't found early..

But the fact that Samba knew about this bug and that this wasn't fixed in the BSDs for several years is bad, yes.
