SonicWall Patches Y2K22 bug


SonicWall has released updates to resolve a Y2K22 bug it has. Referred to as Y2K22, the bug exists because some software stores dates in a 32-bit integer format, where the largest possible number is 2147483647. Because the dates are stored in the YYMMDDhhmm format, when the new year started the date was converted to 2201010001, which was larger than the maximum allowed, and it resulted in system errors.
