RFID Chip Implanted Into
Man Gets Computer Virus

RFID chips have already been implanted in thousands of people around the world, many without their knowledge. Some of these devices are so small and scalable, that they are capable of being inserted in food, patches, medications, hypodermic needles and even inside vaccines. Now a BBC report shows how computer viruses are capable of infecting these chips.


Researchers have found that implanted identity chips can pick up computer viruses.

Reading University's Mark Gasson conducted an experiment to show how radio frequency identity (RFID) chips could become electronically infected.

He explained to Rory Cellan-Jones the risks involved with the new technology including its effects on medical implants such as pacemakers.
