US Navy malware infection risked submarine prang

Crash strike caution
,----[ Quote ]
| If Microsoft's Windows operating system crashes and gives you the "blue
| screen of death", it's a pain in the proverbial, but it's hardly
| life-threatening. In 1998, however, a United States Navy destroyer, the
| USS Yorktown, was left stranded and vulnerable when its Windows
| NT-based control system failed.
| In fact, such networking could be a security risk. Western nations are
| becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attack from hostile nations,
| terrorist groups and criminal syndicates, and an increasing reliance in
| civilian technologies by intelligence and military agencies is having an
| adverse effect on national security.
