Malware Plagues US Drone Computers

Technology Simulation News

In an exclusive article over at wired, we are told of how a suspicious piece of software has made it into the US militaries drone computer network. This network intrusion is reported to have been coupled with a keylogger to record keypresses made by drone operators.

So far, the virus has had no effect on the operators abilities to fly the drones, nor have they seemingly developed a Skynet like intelligence. Word is that this is a benign virus, that could just be standard malware, but it has been able to avoid deletion for the moment.

Are we secure? Should the US government stop using these drones before something happens? Let us hope that the infected software remains safe.
