FRENCH MILITARY – (ANOTHER) VICTIM OF A WINDOWS VIRUS!

Its being reported here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-10159186-71.html that the French military are now victims of a Windows vulnerability, which follows on nicely from my article of the UKs armed serviced being “Terminated” That article can be found HERE.

As pro-Microsoft posters like to say, Windows is secure, so it comes as quite a “shock”!? that another critical service has come under attack from a virus exploiting Windows vulnerabilities.

Whilst this is not going to get the military running for an alternative just yet, (IMO) it highlights a trend of vulnerabilities being brought into the mainstream of late.  It is reported on the site that civil aviation is not affected….so thats ok then?!?.  If this is Windows being secure lets hope it never really does get exploited!?!

For those people with worries about security of their systems, as many pro-MS commenters have implied on MS-Watch before, its easy to avoid and just lazyness or ignorance if you dont.  Keep in mind if you fall victim: Its your fault not Microsofts.
