Remember the Y2K bug? Microsoft confirms new Y2K22 issue

Microsoft says it is aware of a programming flaw which saw some customers’ Exchange servers stop processing emails just as the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve.

System administrators, who are sharing workarounds on social media, have dubbed the bug Y2K22 – in the style of the Y2K bug which affected some computers at exactly the same time 22 years earlier.
