The McCain was fully disabled and not moving when the merchant oil tanker hit it 100% proof !

What this security expert is saying is that he knows that seizing control of a vessel in order to cause a collision [u]is actually possible[/u]. It's no good having the world's strongest navy if you can't berth your ships in a safe place.

[/quote] Take a read of this interesting article from the BBC a few days ago, and scroll down to where it talks about seizing control of a ship. http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40685821 [quote:BBC]"Ecdis systems pretty much never have anti-virus," says Mr Saunders, pointing out the vulnerability. "I don't think I've ever encountered a merchant ship Ecdis unit that had anti-virus on it." These incidents are hugely disruptive to maritime businesses, but truly catastrophic scenarios might involve a hacker attempting to sabotage or even destroy a ship itself, through targeted manipulation of its systems. Could that happen? [b][color=blue]Could, for example, a determined and well-resourced attacker alter a vessel's systems to provoke a collision?[/color][/b] "[b][color=red]It's perfectly feasible,[/color][/b]" says Mr Saunders. "[b][color=red]We've demonstrated proof-of-concept that that could happen.[/color][/b]"[/quote] [/quote] [/quote] Of course it is possible. US Navy ships are running on Microsoft Windows platform. Extensively modified, of course, but still. [/quote]
From that pic you can tell the McCain was dead in the water. There is no shear damage from a ship under power. It was a direct hit ! The McCain would have been under full power to get out of the way of a ship that was 4 times it's size. It was also full daylight as far as I know. No shear no power. Look at where the "V" shaped part of the haul hit the war ship. Not one inch of shear.
