Albeit it's good to see that NASA has loosened up a bit on their draconian tech standardization process, I find this absolutely hilarious. One, a virus on ISS? Two, it's built to steal a bunch of Asian MMO passwords. Three, The laptops carried by astronauts reportedly do not have any anti-virus software on them to prevent infection.. HA!

I thought you'd appreciate that bit of news, as well as the internet-wide BGP vulnerability that allows one to intercept (and alter) traffic destined for ANY IP range across the entire internet.
