MoD probes virus security breach


news.bbc.co.uk

A computer virus is continuing to affect the Ministry of Defence's systems but it insists no classified or personal data is under threat.

Up to 70 sites, including several Royal Navy ships and RAF bases, have been affected by the bug, which has shut down computers and knocked out e-mails.

The virus first hit systems a fortnight ago but the MoD says operations have not been affected.

Pretty worrying that this seems to have been going on for so long without a cure having been found? surely they could have found a way to isolate this virus in a fortnight and if they can't do that in peacetime how would they be able to stop something more serious like a hacking attempt or a cyberattack in wartime?
