Guys, here’s a British scientist who claims that he has become the first ever person to become infected with a computer virus. Here’s the video clip of the experiment with an electronic chip that was inserted in to his arm and then infected with a computer virus, any other chips that comes in to contact with the infected chip can also be infected.
Dr Mark Gasson from the University of Reading contaminated a computer chip which was then inserted into his hand.
The device, which enables him to pass through security doors and activate his mobile phone, is a sophisticated version of ID chips used to tag pets.
In trials, Dr Gasson showed that the chip was able to pass on the computer virus to external control systems.
If other implanted chips had then connected to the system they too would have been corrupted, he said.
