Computer Virus Shuts Down Holden Production

Yesterday, Holden's Elizabeth, Australia plant was shut down for several hours by ZOTOB, a virus that afflicts machines running the Windows operating system. While the company's been known for some pretty angry vehicles over the years, a number of which we wish were available in the US besides the Pontiac GTO, their reputation for quality hasn't always been exactly stellar. Apparently, their IT guys aren't exactly up to snuff either. [Update: Apparently Holden wasn't the only car company affected by ZOTOB, it also managed to cripple 13 of Chrysler's plants.]
