Im still shocked from reading it. But it appears hackers have managed to disable certain communitcation devices on the ISS. The escape capsule is being warmed up as we speak incase things get worse.



Hackers are thought to have planted a Trojan in the computer systems at Houston and used the infection to ride the satellite uplink to the Space Station.

Well, if you read the article, it is pretty short but half of it is taking jabs at Microsoft security. Saying that they will not provide support because the software is too old... poking fun at vista..etc. Also, it isn't on the front page of any other news source, which it would be if it were true.

It is subtle, with no outright admission of being a prank, but when you add it up it is pretty clear.
