Default Scientist self-"infects" with computer virus

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1008548.html

Quote:
A British scientist has been implanted with an RFID chip that contains a computer virus. The virus is reportedly able to infect RFID readers and in this way spread to further RFID chips.

In first tests for his proof-of-concept study, Mark Gasson at the University of Reading has reportedly already managed to transfer the virus to other systems from the chip implanted in his finger. Gasson, who became known for such projects as his research into coupling the human nervous system with computers, has launched these tests to highlight the risks of the increasingly popular medical RFID implants.
