Ministry of Defence reveals Lovgate found a weakness in its defences
According to Computer Weekly the UK's Ministry of Defence (MOD) has revealed that, last year, it spent £10m on clearing up after a virus infection.
The MOD believes that the Lovgate worm was introduced onto its systems by a user inserting an infected floppy disc.
The MoD has suffered 71 virus and malicious code infections since it began keeping records in May 2002. They have included two MyDoom, one Sobig and five Netsky infections.
