Evil computer virus manipulates US drones
Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet

A computer virus has infected the cockpits of America’s Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones.

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.

“We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back,” says a source familiar with the network infection, one of three that told Danger Room about the virus. “We think it’s benign. But we just don’t know.”

Perhaps it's the Galactic Federation. They're doing a lot of preventative things in our world.

It could be a test of the intergalactical war. I mean china and russia have also plans to be the ruler in the univers. So therefore a virus would be nice.

Because nowadays people are brainwashed. I do not know the origin of this virus. But thankfully it stops the missions for a while.

In case russia made this virus we would never get the answer through the MSM. But these are just speculations. But the interesting thing is that it always coming back. I guess that it comes back in a different version. So changeing its core by itself.

Re: Evil computer virus manipulates US drones
Something does not sound right with the story. Why would the US release a story that their drone fleet was infected with a virus? Surely that information would be considered classified or at least sensitive.

Didn't the US state recently that certain type of cyber attack could result in military action if determined to be state sponsored? Of course, that would mean the US would have to back up their words with action.

Re: Evil computer virus manipulates US drones
All that is just a sign for the coming cyber matrix. I guess that this is just a test. I mean the military is experimenting with computer chips implanting it into the human brain. With the help of nanotechnology everything is possible. So first they test it in vitro like on machines. And then in vivo like humen.

Just look around you. Skynet is watching you and you do not recognize that there is already a computer chip in your body received from your last vaccine. Animals are already officially chipped. Just a matter of time.

Welcome to the new matrix.
