Scientist Gives Himself a Computer Virus

Dr. Mark Gasson from the University of Reading, UK, is the first human to be infected with a computer virus. He accomplished this by corrupting a small chip, an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) which exists in certain credit and identity cards. Dr. Gasson put the chip into his hand and was able to pass on the virus to other devices such as security doors and his cell phone.
