Failures due to improper testing

1. Microsoft’s Anti-Unix Site Crashes: Was not tested on different OS/Environments before switching from one environment to another.
2. Cisco Flaw Enables DoS Attack: Not properly tested for integration with different products other than that of the producer.
3. Computer Glitch Causes £22m Tax Error: Not properly tested the system as a whole. Lack of sufficient system testing to take care of data transfer aspects.
4. Yahoo Glitch strikes again: The system was not properly tested to see whether all its components successfully integrated before going live.
- all problems and failures due to lack of or ineffectiveness of testing effort.

Successful Software Testing
- Depends on how EFFICIENTLY the Testing
Process is INTEGRATED into the Software
Development Process
