SCIENTISTS did not think it was possible, but now a UK team has invented a digital virus that can spread through the air like a biological disease.
In a significant breakthrough, researchers at the University of Liverpool have designed an airborne virus codenamed ‘Chameleon’, ScienceBlog reports.
The virus, which spreads almost as quickly as the common cold, piggybacks on Wi-Fi waves to spread from network to network.

What do you think ATS?
...And lemme guess; They will be coming out with anti-Wi-Fi virus software, rrrRRRIGHT??????
I don't get why people make virus to begin with. It compromises the system and should be seen as an attack on humanity!!
Why aren't they using their research dollars on something POSITIVE? Like a way to protect WiFi networks.....often these geniuses spend far too much time trying to do something rather than asking themselves if they SHOULD do it.
