A bug introduced 6 months ago brought Google's Cloud Load Balancer to its knees


Re: Heisenbug

When I wrote the executive for the Dartmouth Time Sharing System I noticed that a bug that was there from day zero would be triggered maybe a year later. Once this happened, it was triggered several times a day.

This was not because of a hacker but it just seemed the way things happened.

For malicious attacks the statistics were different.
