Man infects himself with computer virus


www.msnbc.msn.com

University of Reading researcher Mark Gasson has become the first human known to be infected by a computer virus.

The virus, infecting a chip implanted in Gasson's hand, passed into a laboratory computer. From there, the infection could have spread into other computer chips found in building access cards.

All this was intentional, in an experiment to see how simple radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips like those used for tracking animals can host and spread technological diseases.

This is scary.

I see the media is still pushing the RFID as a medical breakthrough.

I wonder how long it will be until they are pushing for mandatory chipping of all new born babies and children.

Much like when we needed to be fingerprinted in grade school.

Can you imagine getting a pace maker and then somebody developping a virus to make it stop working or something of that nature?

That's a whole new era of Technological Terrorism there...

What are your thoughts ATS?

This is really weird. So someone could intentially get a chip and then get a computer virus into the chip, then they could go and sabatague equipment if they wanted to. How would they then be able to figure out who did it? It is like they are a walking computer virus. Weird.
