I'm guessing it means that MS have a process that is supposed to ensure that changes to AD are done in a safe way. However there was a bug in the change process, rather than in the change itself, which then somehow broke the change or failed to apply it fully.

A car analogy might be the manufacturer failing to fit the narrow-necked fuel filler pipe that prevents a large diameter nozzle diesel pump being put into an unleaded-only car. The prevention device is missing so the driver isn't prevented from accidentally filling-up with the wrong fuel.
