Viruses leap to smart radio tags

RFID tags are a concern for many privacy advocates. This sounds like fun:

Computer viruses could be about to take a giant leap and start spreading via smart barcodes, warn experts.

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.

Makers of radio tag systems were urged by the group to introduce safeguards to guard against RFID-borne bugs.

I can't wait for RFID tags to be incorporated into Driver's Licenses. It'll be a boon to the IED industry. Good for the economy.
