old aircraft maintenance systems

I used to work on fixed and moving wing aircraft maintenance records systems last century and the likelihood is, give that they are using the older dash 8 , that the system has not been upgraded either and is probably still running on NT or 98. If you can't see the maintenance record of the aircraft it shouldn't be flown, thats the most likely reason for the cancellations. Its unlikely that the aircraft itself was compromised.
