Title: Y2K38
Authors: Amit Kumar
Keywords: Unix Millennium Bug
Issue Date: 6-Jan-2011
Abstract: Y2K38 (The Year 2038 Problem) is a problem that is occurring in the year 2038. Just as Y2K problems arise from programs not allocating enough digits for representing the year, Y2K38 problems arise from programs not allocating enough bits to the internal year. Y2K38 not only affects the computers but also many electronic chips. And these chips are embedded into the control electronics to manage the product’s functionality. After 19-jan- 2038 in a 32-bit machine, its clock will overflow and return erroneous values such as 1- jan-1970 or 13-dec-1901. As embedded systems are used in satellites, space probe computers, navigation systems, power plants, atom bombs, missile controllers and in many other fields. So after 9-jan- 2038 these systems will go abnormal.
