America’s Most reliable Remote killing machine Drone is infected by computer virus. US Predator which is fly over Pakistan and Afghanistan for destroying terrorist area.
The virus has infected Creech Air Force base in Nevada from where the robotic machines fly globally. The virus was first detected about two weeks ago by the military’s Host-Based Security System, but it had not halted missions flown remotely over Afghanistan.
The infection, first reported by Wired magazine two weeks back is allegedly logging pilots’ every keystroke as they carry out the missions.
The virus has remained on the drones’ computer system despite multiple efforts to remove it. “We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back… We think it’s benign,” Wired magazine reported.
“Military network security specialists aren’t sure whether the virus and its so-called ‘keylogger’ payload were introduced intentionally or by accident; it may be a common piece of malware that just happened to make its way into these sensitive networks,” the magazine said.
The specialists don’t know exactly how far the virus has spread. Something is going on, but it has not had any impact on the missions overseas.
