Defense Industry Daily wrote an article about the issue France was having with the software on their planes about a month ago. Contrary to media reports inflating the story, an upgrade to the Rafale's targeting system was improperly installed which led to performance issues with the weather radar.

However, the Royal Navy DID have some massive issues with the worm.

IF anyone is worried about this worm...DL Malwarebyte's free version, update it and do a full scan. Its been part of their detection files for awhile now.

Ahaha, the one time being in Iraq may be at least marginally beneficial. My personal laptop has no connection to the internet; problem solved.

And, really, I couldn't care less about the gov't computers.
