Human Computer Virus?

University of Reading researcher Mark Gasson has become the "first human known to be infected by a computer virus" (but it's not quite like what it sounds).

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 an intentional experiment to see how radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips like those used for tracking packages or those implanted in animals can become infected.
