Breaking News: Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet
The virus, first detected nearly two weeks ago by the military’s Host-Based Security System, has not prevented pilots at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada from flying their missions overseas. Nor have there been any confirmed incidents of classified information being lost or sent to an outside source. But the virus has resisted multiple efforts to remove it from Creech’s computers, network security specialists say. And the infection underscores the ongoing security risks in what has become the U.S. military’s most important weapons system.

This should not have been reported, IMHO.

Just like when banks get hacked they would rather not report it and lose business. Also more might try uploading viruses.
