    "Boeing and the U.S. Navy have been testing new targeting technologies for the EA-18G. One of the items the team from VX-23 tested was a Windows tablet. Boeing says the tablet was integrated with the aircraft mission system and it allowed aircrews to more easily access data and communicate with crews in other aircraft."

    Every intelligence agency in the world will figure out how to install a Trojan onto those devices. :confused:

    Hopefully they don't start BYOD in the military like this. :0o:

    It seems that the "smarter" a weapon system becomes, the more vulnerable it gets in regards to cyberwarfare and possible electronic warfare.
