Solaris bug takes the shine off Sun servers

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Sun Microsystems has discovered a flaw in its Solaris operating system which,
under rare circumstances, could result in the silent corruption of data stored on its
enterprise servers.

The bug came to light when Sun's development engineers reviewed the code used
to implement dynamic reconfiguration in the process of developing the feature,
which allows boards to be swapped out of machines without having to shut down
systems."
