+ - EVE Online update corrupts Windows installations

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "The recent EVE Online expansion, Trinity, appears to have an unbelievably nasty bug that makes one question whether the publisher, CCP, has any QA at all; a typo in the patch results in C:\boot.ini being deleted. The patcher adds an extra backslash onto a delete command for "boot.ini" resulting in "\boot.ini", which if the game is installed on C: refers to Windows' boot.ini file. Hundreds of players have reported their computers being unable to boot, and tens of thousands more will likely encounter the same problem when they attempt to turn on their computer tomorrow. Oops?"
