Y2K-like ‘bug’ could zap GPS systems, experts say


A frightening computer bug could cause a transportation nightmare by destroying older GPS systems.

Cyber-security expert Bill Malik told the tech publication Tom’s Guide he’d be afraid to fly April 6, the day a computer calendar “roll-over” to zero is triggered, according to Britain’s Sun newspaper.

A similar Y2K disaster was forecast for New Year’s Day 2000, but never happened.
