Microsoft says bug, sorry, 'a latent defect' in Safe Deployment Process system downed Azure Active Directory

Is it just me ...?

"The disruption occurred, Microsoft says, because a bug in its Azure AD's Safe Deployment Process rendered it unsafe: the safeguard pushed through a crash-inducing update into production, bypassing the usual verification process, and ultimately broke AD."

I have no idea what this says. Can somebody translate it into English please?

My take is that an update was applied which shouldn't have because it was buggy enough to ultimately take down the system *and* it was applied by protection software which was bug ridden enough to do exactly the opposite of what it was supposed to do ... or have I got the wrong end of a very sticky stick?
