Could the UK's New Aircraft Carriers be Compromised by Cyber Attacks?

The
security of Britain's new £6 billion aircraft carriers could be
compromised by cyber attacks because of their reliance on ageing
software, according to a research team at Lancaster University.


It says computer software
will have a dramatically shorter life than the ships themselves and
enemies could try to exploit social media to undermine the security of
personnel on board.



One of the authors of the paper, Dr Dan Prince, spoke to BFBS Radio about the potential threat.
