+ - Predator Drone Virus Could be Military Monitoring ->

Submitted by jjp9999
jjp9999 (2180664) writes "The virus that hit Predator and Reaper UAVs could be an internal monitoring system employed by the military. According to security researcher Miles Fidelman there are vendors that sell security monitoring packages to the Defense Department which are ‘essentially rootkits that do, among other things, key logging.’ The virus is a keylogger that was found at pilot stations, and could be keeping tabs on keystrokes used by pilots to control the UAVs, found Wired’s Danger Room blog. Fidelman adds ‘I kind of wonder if the virus that folks are fighting is something that some other part of DoD deployed intentionally.’"
