And now the German parliament systems are infected with a Windows Trojan they cannot control or destroy. They admitted today they don't know what it's doing and went as far as declaring the internal systems cannot be considered safe and might be happily copying secret information somewhere.

But they ignored the alternatives. You get what you pay for.
