Microsoft sued over software flaw



A South Korean man claims that Microsoft hid information about a flaw in Windows and has filed suit against the Operating System maker.

Jang Young-ha, 47, filed the lawsuit against Microsoft with the Suwon District Court on charges of deception, accusing the US software giant of selling the flawed program for use in handheld electronic devices.


Apparently he bought two Windows servers (and had a PDA of some sort.)

When Jang downloaded personal data such as customers’ birthdays and his schedules from the servers to his personal digital assistant, he found that the downloaded dates were always one day ahead of the original ones.

Jang informed a technician at Microsoft’s Korean unit about the flaw, but the technician responded that the company won’t be able to fix it because it stemmed from a fundamental error, not a bug.

“Microsoft sold flawed software without notifying customers even though it knew previously,” Jang said. “Instead, I was damaged by loss of my personal data and costs. It should definitely be responsible for the deception.”
