    Saw this news report today on the BBC:

    Computer virus affects hospitals http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7735502.stm

    Doesn't identify the virus. Strangely the Hospital is quoted as saying the virus was "not malicious" Eh? A non-malicious virus that causes your computer systems to have to be taken off line, causing ambulances to be diverted?

    Have heard the virus in question was mytob.....which begs the question what happened to their security systems which was only updated end of last year.
