Top software bugs of 2014

Posted by Jeff Bounds on January 28, 2015 at 7:00am 0 Comments

For years, open source software has largely gone without regimented testing efforts. The assumption has been that the multitude of developers and users catch the glitches in the code.

But as a recent Wired article shows, that assumption took a whack on the chin in 2014. In recounting the five “most dangerous bugs” of last year, author Andy Greenberg finds that many significant problems last year cropped up in code that was often years old, sometimes decades – and often of the open source variety.

“The sentiment was that if something is so widely deployed by companies that have huge security budgets, it must have been checked a million times before,” Karsten Nohl, a security researcher at SR Labs, told…

The differences they found reflect big changes in the world of enterprise software development. The software environment is more complex, heterogenous and interdependent than ever, and the change quickens almost by the day.

As a result, companies increasingly are turning to service virtualization -- in essence, a way of mimicking any dependent service or environment – to make a complex world simple for the purpose of development and testing. The…

As organizations mull the transition to a more Agile development process, the focus is often on development or test automation tools like service virtualization that support them.

But Mary Thorn, Director of Quality Assurance at ChannelAdvisor, and co-author of the forthcoming book “The Three Pillars of Agile Testing,” argues that organizations need to think about implementing an Agile testing process to make Agile processes work well. I caught up with her recently and she explained what this means and how testers and QA personnel need to take a more proactive role in the development lifecycle.
