RFID virus


I found this somewhat funny.

Researchers have shown that it is possible to write a virus for RFID that only needs to be scanned to spread. The part about animals that are chipped is the scariest part.

Security researchers have infected a Radio Frequency ID tag with a computer virus to show how the technology is vulnerable to malicious hackers. The researchers warn that RFID tags could help mount many different types of attacks on computer systems.
