Unhappy Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet

Now, what worries me is putting these two sentences next to each other:

1. "These drones have killed more than 2,000 suspected militants and civilians"

2. "They followed removal instructions posted on the website of the Kaspersky security firm. But the virus kept coming back. We think it’s benign. But we just don’t know.”

For God's sake, if I want, I can see exactly what each piece of code running on any machine is doing. And stop calling it a "virus". Its the first big error. A virus is some piece of code that become useless as its fingerprint got nailed by the Antivirus companies. There are zillions of malicious poly-morphing pieces of code out there that will never be traced.
