World leaders at the G8 summit have pledged to take "further urgent action" to prevent disruption from the millennium bug but failed to give any details about what form that action would take.
A statement at the end of the summit said the members would "share information among ourselves and with others, that will assist in preventing disruption in the near and long term."
The statement added that the intention is to work with interested organisations, including the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, to forestall a possible computer induced catastrophe.
