French fighter planes grounded by computer virus

The aircraft were unable to download their flight plans after databases were infected by a Microsoft virus they had already been warned about several months beforehand.

:cool::cool:

Use Linux :stuck_out_tongue:

I find it hard to believe they don’t use a proprietary OS. Haven’t they seen “Battlestar Galactica”, thats what the whole series is based on. How about “Independence Day”, alien mothership blows up, virus download? I have seen American aviation systems and they have nothing to do with Windows. They are all weird box’s that are special built. Who knows? Sacre Bleu!!

The French probably planted their own Virus so they didn’t have to go fight…

Le’ virus Cordon Bleu!!
