Insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan have hacked into live video feeds from Predator drones, a key weapon in a Pentagon spy system that serves as the U.S. military's eyes in the sky for surveillance and intelligence collection. Shiite fighters in Iraq used off-the-shelf software programs such as SkyGrabber--available for as little as $25.95 on the Internet--to regularly capture drone video feeds.
