Britain’s brand new Aircraft Carrier uses Windows XP!!!

Britain’s largest ever warship is not “vulnerable” to cyber-attacks despite running on Microsoft Windows XP, a 16-year-old operating system, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has said.

The Conservative minister defended the use of what many consider to be outdated technology on HMS Queen Elizabeth the day after it left its dockyard for the first time to begin sea trials. 

Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, meaning it does not receive updates to protect users from new types of attacks.

What could possibly go wrong?
