+ - US Combat Drone Fleet Catches a Virus->

Submitted by MaroonMotor
MaroonMotor writes: Wired's Danger Room is running a story that "A computer virus has infected the cockpits of America’s Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones.". The net warriors/armchair flyboys dont know if the systems were specifically targetted or even if data is being uploaded on the internet. They speculate that the virus "is benign" after the virus resisted multiple efforts to remove it from computers,

Can this virus be used as plausible deniability in case the government get into hot water after it decides to bump off some more US citizens without benefit of trial?
