W.J. Hennigan reporting on [last weeks Predator Drone virus](http://brooksreview.net/2011/10/safety-first/):
>The Air Force shot down those claims, saying the virus “in question is a credential stealer, not a keylogger, found routinely on computer networks and is considered more of a nuisance than an operational threat. It is not designed to transmit data or video, nor is it designed to corrupt data, files or programs on the infected computer.”

*Guys, guys, calm down. They aren’t logging anything — they’re just stealing our top secret credentials. No big deal.*

And later:

>[…] Cook said the Air Force continues to strengthen cyber defenses, “using the latest anti-virus software and other methods to protect Air Force resources and assure our ability to execute Air Force missions.

*Before we didn’t see the need to pay for this years version of Norton, but we now see why we need that. The update should be done in 3 mins and 37 seconds.*
