I suspect that most members of this list have not been following the tail of Knight Capitalís rather odd way of loosing $460m via algorithmic trading.

It turns out to have been caused by some unused/dead code coming back to life (the technical stuff starts around para 13): http://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2013/34-70694.pdf
