A few weeks ago, we read about how the British Royal Navy would be installing Windows XP on some of its submarines. Oh boy, did we all share some laughs! “Control-Alt-Drown,” said one commenter; “Beware the blue cruise missile of death!” said another. We ROFL’d and LOL’d all the live-long day.

Well in a somewhat related story, it appears that computers aboard a handful of the British Royal Navy’s warships actually contracted a virus that cut off e-mail and internet access. [CrunchGear]
