Virus infected US airforce drones

From Wired: A computer virus has infected the cockpits of America’s Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones.
This is definitely malware (virus, to be specific). But... details are insufficient to be sure this really is part of an intentional APT attack against US airforce, or just a virus keylogger which accidently hit their machines. Propagation apparently by removable media (USB memory sticks?). So, not adding it to my list yet.
