    Talking Computer Virus Mutates To Humans
    Well - The headlines on the front page of one of the trash tabloids that people buy at the check out lanes in stores said that computer viruses have mutated and have crossed over into humans and are now infecting people world wide.

    I wonder how many idiots bought the paper and belive it.

    A sucker is born every minute.

    RFID chips can spread viruses
    RFID chips can spread viruses:

    "'An RFID tag can be infected with a virus and this virus can infect the back-end database used by the RFID software. From there it can be easily spread to other RFID tags,' they said.

    As a result, it is possible that criminals or militants could use an infected RFID tag to upset airline baggage handling systems with potentially devastating consequences, they said.

    The same technology could also be used to wreak havoc with the databases used by supermarkets." [1]

    That is not infecting a human being with a computer virus - example - like the flu.

    The 'WSTD', or Web Surfing Transmitted Disease, is most common among those individuals visiting addictive sites laced with PHP (ie: Abestweb). Often times these sites have 'heroin content' and share un-sterilized 'code-cane' links...

    While it's hilariously stupid to us, it could potentially keep people off their computers. But those are people too stupid to complete a transaction without physical assistance so maybe we won't be affected. ;-)

    Some people really are dumb as $h!t. Once I was over in my wife's friends home. Her friend's husband knew I was a webmaster and he wanted to purchase a domain for his company, so we went to his computer and went online. I found the domain he wanted and I told him to get his credit card ready. He got his credit card, looked at his desktop from top to bottom and asked me, "Where do I insert the credit card." TRUE STORY!!!

    JJJay, hopefully you taught him how to order online with his CC.

    Maybe he will swing by one of my sites later and make a purchase

    Probably the same idjits who've downloaded so many BHOs that their computers don't work anymore. Not my demographic. ROFL.

    Wonderful news... I suspect that the same people that read tabloids are the ones that still write checks at the supermarket, so I'll bet your customer base is safe from the virus

    I like that!

    The only problem is, wouldn't you need to forward the message to everyone in your address book before deleting the files?!
