British Royal Navy Warships Attacked by Malware

Apparently warships of the British Royal Navy are under attack by an unspecified malware (malwares?). These machines, part of the NavyStar system, as well as part of the infrastructure itself, from the sound of it, have been shut down to contain the infection. This has left the ships without crew internet access, among other systems. Makes you wonder if this is part of the giant Conficker botnet that appears to be in the works.

I can only imagine that having your submarine bluescreen would be a very bad thing.
