Murder Victims Get Tech Savvy

Virus infects computers piloting U.S. drone

"A computer virus that logs keystrokes the has infected computers used in Nevada to remotely pilot U.S. drones over Afghanistan and other war zones, Wired reports. As far as the Pentagon knows, no classified information has been lost or transmitted outside.

The keystroke logger was first detected nearly two weeks ago at Creech Air Force Base, where most Predator and Reaper drones are guided, and has stubbornly resisted removal, sources told Noah Shachtman, who writes the Danger Room blog.

"We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back," one source said." We think it's benign. But we just don't know."
