OK, now it's serious. It's one thing to lose credit card information or for your Facebook account to be high jacked, but malware is said to have been instrumental in the cause of death and destruction in the crash of a Spainair flight two years ago. Investigators have determined that ground computers were infected with malicious code that may have prevented the pilots from being warned that the flaps were in the wrong configuration for takeoff.
This blog has previously discussed the malicious code problem here, here and here. Experts in virus protection are becoming increasingly pessimistic about the ability of reactive virus protection to be effective.
A video of the crash can be seen here. Warning, this is unsettling in that it is video of an event where a large number of people lost their lives.
I told you this was serious.
