Crash strike caution

| 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.
