Linux saves networks from disastrous virus attack
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the computer networks of Australian power supplier,
Integral Energy has recently been attacked by a nasty virus, affecting all its 1,000 facility's
computers, which had to be repaired.
Integral Energy quickly swapped the infected Windows boxes for machines running Linux to prevent
the virus from taking over all the operator displays in the control room. Fortunately, their power
grid control servers run on Solaris that eventually save the day.
