Military Review

Computers drums American UAV were infected

62
In the onboard computers of percussion American drone Predator and Reaper detected a virus that replicates all operator commands, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to www.popmech.ru.




It is reported that "the malware was discovered two weeks ago by the security service, however, the drones went to perform combat missions in Afghanistan."

Remove the virus was not easy. We wash it, and it comes back,
told the soldier of the US Air Force Base Crich, where they serve drones.

According to military experts, “a virus can be a keylogger — a program that records a user's actions.” However, what the program does with the information received, the military has not yet established.

It is also unknown, “how the virus penetrated the protected military networks and how much it spread through them,” the newspaper notes.

American UAVs are not the first time become the subject of computer hacking - drones transmit video in unprotected mode and large amounts of intelligence information are then found in the laptops captured from terrorists.

              Exactly. Keyloggers are one of the tools for controlling a developer over user actions. What would be in the case of a curved operator - "in the guarantee - refuse!"

        .Here on the site someone hangs under the nickname St-Petrov - with any criticism the power is held - he’s right there, constantly rude and scoffs. And, notice, no one sends him to the ban. Who sends him to the ban (who will put him in ) - he’s the “watch dog” of the forum Military Review (he’s a monument)! Walking in a “dialogue” with me he called on all Armenians to “sell tomatoes.” I emphasize - he scoffed at an entire people like that. the battle, Nazis like St- Petrova turn the site into a trash can. He’s even kidding - not the Armenians should sit at the MCC console and control space missions, and not the Armenians should rivet weapons, but the Russians should sell tomatoes! I repeat - with such a policy You won’t go far, encouraging the Nazis.

              If the troll is not "fed", in the end he will leave.
              But among the provocateurs, there are simply people who are interested in a provocative question, proceeding from riskiness, uncontrollability, conflict risk, simply the delicacy of the situation.

I will not stoop to your level so that in return to insult all Armenians in a crowd to insult all Russians. I have not yet become a Nazi. I have good memories of your girls.

      "Here Kaspersky is to blame for any"
      The anti-virus programs have already designated Kaspersky Anti-Virus as a malicious program. Perhaps it didn’t completely go away after uninstallation and the “correct” antiviruses swear at it?
      And I remember on the early versions of Casper there was a disaster (on Win XP) - after removing the antivirus and then rebooting the system, the latter flatly refused to start, twice I had to reinstall the OS from scratch. Maybe the striped admins decided to get rid of the "Russian paranoid" and got the result?

        So then, before installing the new version, you had to manually delete the old one. Moreover, “Kaspersky” did not swear at “Eset”, but did not like “Doctors”

    UAVs transmit video in unprotected mode and then find large amounts of intelligence information in laptops seized from terrorists.

    "If the stars are lit, then someone needs it."
    If you need to transmit information / prepare a cover legend for terrorists, drones will continue to transmit information in an unprotected mode.
    Receive commands on an encrypted channel, and merge the info in the public domain.
