Modern society's reliance on software even in critical infrastructure systems makes software failures difficult to ignore. The cost of such failures manifests itself not only in dollars but also in lives. We present several examples from diverse critical systems that show the dire consequences of software failures and discuss recent research efforts aimed at finding and eliminating such errors.
