Man, these stories that get noticed purely cos they've got a reference to an iPod in the title ....

"With USB devices, if you plug it straight into the computer you can bypass passwords and get right on the system," RAF Wing Commander Peter D'Ardenne told Reuters. "That's why we had to plug that gap."

How the heck does that work? Someone surely has to enter a password to even be ON the system.
