Researchers have found that implanted identity chips can pick up computer viruses.

Reading University's Mark Gasson conducted an experiment to show how radio frequency identity (RFID) chips could become electronically infected.

He explained to Rory Cellan-Jones the risks involved with the new technology including its effects on medical implants such as pacemakers.

Just goes to show that pretty much everything electronic based can receive a virus. Heck I was actually slight surprised my phone could receive a virus and was more shocked that Adware could be downloaded.

Despite the risks involved in these chips something tells me it will/could very well be rushed out even with all the warnings of it being dangerous.
