Contest Prompt Questions: Debugging [Sample 2]

What bug took the longest to find, and how did you ultimately find it?


What would you say are the most important bugs to check for (i.e. security etc.) as a baseline? Do you have any advice or mind hacks for how to do that?


What are some common but strange code glitches that you tend to see a surprising amount of?
