Seven Steps to Software Security

The Taliban have evidently decided to add popular UK chanteuse Myleene Klass to the very long list of things they don't approve of - and last week demonstrated their commitment to rid Afghanistan of her ilk by shooting at the RAF aircraft taking her on a whistlestop, morale-boosting tour of that fun-loving nation.

According to The Sun, the shaken 28-year-old brunette recounted: "I had to wear a protective helmet and flak jacket. As we flew into Kabul I could hear this massive 'thwack' on the side of the plane. Then I could hear this grinding noise, which I found out was defence shields being put up. It scared the living daylights out of me."

The RAF quickly scrambled a fighter to escort Ms Klass to safety, which means the Taliban dismally failed to prevent her taking her place in the forthcoming series of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!.

This will not, sadly, be set in Afghanistan, so TV viewers will not have the pleasure of seeing Klass whining miserably when challenged by the production company to flush 100 black turbans from the Tora Bora cave complex armed with nothing more than her musical assets. ®
