|Microsoft has apologised after a programmer hid the phrase 'BIG BOOBS' into software code. |
Times might change, but it seems computer programmers remain just as juvenile - and male - as ever.
Microsoft has apologised for the 'joke', saying it is an 'offensive string'.
The computer giant has created a 'patch' which fixes the issue.
The offending code is hidden within computer code that connects the Linux kernel to a Microsoft 'virtualisation' product.
Non-nerds might have a problem spotting the offending code in the first place - it's a string in the hexadecimal computer language which says, '0xB16B00B5'.
If you squint, it says, 'BIG BOOBS.'
