U.S. military drones are hacked

The U.S. military does not use encryption on the last leg of video communications with the drones that fly over Iraq and Afghanistan, and apparently their communications have been hacked. The hackers apparently used a $25.95 Windows application to track the aircraft, and see which areas the U.S. is flying over.

Oh, and apparently the military has known about the problem since the 1990s. Argh.
