Man injects himself with a computer virus

A researcher from the U.K, Mark Gasson, has
become the first person in the world to be
infected by a computer virus. Technically
speaking, the chip that Gasson inserted into
his hand is infected, "which one could argue
keeps the virus limited to the domain of the
chip even though it lives inside the man."
Continue reading for the news report and
more information.
But Gasson, of the University of Reading's
School of Systems Engineering, suggests this
argument is immaterial because he is
demonstrating that increasingly sophisticated
medical implants will become vulnerable to
computer viruses. Which means that those
implants that are vital to a human's health
and survival could, if corrupted, compromise
the health--and potentially the survival--of the
carrier.
