UK Researcher Infects Self with Computer Virus

This story is not nearly as cool as you might think. We aren’t looking at the Lawn Mower man here. A researcher in the UK took one of the ID chips that people use to identify lost pets and infected it with a computer virus.

The then implanted the chip into his hand reports BBC News. The chip the researcher used was designed to allow him to pass through security doors and to activate his mobile phone.

The virus placed onto the chip infected the external control systems that operate the doors. That means each door the researcher passes though was infected with a copy of the virus. The researcher claims that this is a proof-of-concept and shows how this sort of system if used in the future could be attacked.
