    Man Infects Himself with Computer Virus

    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.

    The research shows that as implantable bionic devices such as pacemakers get more sophisticated in the years ahead, their security and the safety of the patients whose lives depend on them will become increasingly important, said Gasson.

    "We should start to think of these devices as miniature computers," Gasson said. And just like everyday computers, they can get sick.

    I find it sick to implant computers into humans to be able to trace every step of them. And who knows what sick stuff they else have in mind with chipped humans.

    scary

    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
