Mark Gasson, a researcher from the U.K, is currently having a computer virus in his body and the effect it might have in his body is yet to be known.

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.”

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.

ThisĀ  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.
