Black boxes

This is why the Royal Navy can't have nice things.

Someone in the MOD apparently didn’t realize that the black text boxes they used to redact sensitive information regarding the UK’s nuclear-powered submarines could be easily undone by a simple cut and past command. Whoops!

United States Navy submarine secrets were also reportedly leaked in the process. I had wondered how the UK would respond to the Obama administration handing over Trident missile information to the Russians and I suspect I now have my answer.
