Talk about an old Bug...

Otto Moerbeek, a developer from OpenBSD discovered a bug in YACC recently. "Funny thing is that I traced this back to Sixth Edition Unix, released in 1975”.

This bug follows the May discovery of a 25 years old BSD flaw.

So how many code errors have occured as a result of the parser error in the last 33 years?
