Earlier this week Microsoft fixed a severe security vulnerability that, it turns out, has been present in its operating systems going all the way back to Windows 95. Is this the oldest or longest-lived Microsoft bug ever? It certainly could be, but, despite the severity of this bug, I still wouldn’t call it Microsoft’s biggest software mistake ever. That title belongs to another 1990s-vintage Windows “feature.” At least they eventually fixed that one, too.
