Computer viruses have become more resilient it would seem. NASA has confirmed that a certain Gammima.AG has made its way across all 180miles seperating the earth from the ISS (International Space Station) to infect computers on the space station. The virus remains dormant on machines and then steals user’s details for online games, it is rated as a "low risk" virus with no serious repercussions expexted.

Only labelled as a "nuisance" and nothing more, NASA are currently investingating how the virus made its way all the way into orbit. Have the astronauts been gaming online? Maybe Scrabulous? Maybe we can still play Scrabulous in space. What a thought.
