Submission + - Virus infects U.S. military drones (tgdaily.com) 1

Fippy Darkpaw writes: "A computer virus has reportedly infected Predator and Reaper drones deployed in Afghanistan and other war zones. According to Danger Room's Noah Shachtman, the virus — which was first detected two weeks ago — logs every keystroke as U.S.-based pilots remotely fly combat and surveillance missions overseas."

"Unsurprisingly, military sources claim the virus hasn't managed to compromise classified information. As such, the drones have yet to be grounded."
