ECU viruses

I was wondering about something. I saw on ITN news the other day about how
theres going to be a virus that's going to wipe out almost everything in
the year 2000. Utilities, etc. are covered, as well. Breat Britain has a
15,000,000 pound program to develop a new language to get around the
problem. My question is: what about our cars? Aren't the ecu's programmed
with the same langauge as main systems? Are they subject to the same
virus? Will we not be able to drive our cars in 2000? Any computer guys on
the list?
