RFID as virus-vehicles

In a paper that has been doing the rounds on the Net recently, and causing a heated response, is the report "Is Your Cat Infected With A Computer Virus?" (PDF).

Worldchanging has a measured reaction to this report here which discusses some of the implications involved when RFID tags/implants are able to become deliberately infected with a virus which they then pass on through their networking.

As with this technology, increased privacy security is a top issue.
