CNN: The Defense Department has confirmed an earlier story from Wired that revealed that the IT systems that control U.S. military drones have been infected with a virus. However, a Defense official said the malware has not "stopped flights worldwide."

The virus reportedly records pilot key strokes, and officials aren't sure how it was contracted or how to get rid of it.
