Probably the most famous case, and most referred to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Therac-25

There is even a lecture on it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxX-aAvZbmM :P

And the most expensive one is the Ariane 5 space rocket crash

Look into the FiRe control report... It's not software specific but it was designed to be a large-scale and nation-wide system. It's stupid, because the government are still paying hundreds of millions now to keep the buildings up to scratch and will be, up until like 2030!

Also, this one was recommended to me by my lecturer for further reading: http://www.ehi.co.uk/news/EHI/7918/n...%A34.6m-on-it-
