Drones Hacked, gulp


The Predator drones controlled out of Creech AF Base has a virus. Reports claim its a key logger and it was discovered two weeks ago but can't be cleared. The computer system is a common PC.

Someday our Govt is really gonna do us in with lack of computer security on critical items.

Do you have a link to this story?

What on earth makes you think they have a "lack of computer security on critical items". I can assure you this is not the case. Is any system infallible? No.

And when the drones start accidentally blowing up government critics, it can now be blamed on hackers ......................... which everyone knows all work for George Bush.
