Dr. Mark Gasson is the first human to ever be contaminated with a computer virus, essentially making humans susceptible to contractible computer viruses. Yes, you read that correctly: A human can be contaminated with a computer virus.

The study was a test to see if it was possible for contractible computer viruses to be implemented into humans. Dr. Gasson implanted a chip into his skin which was infected with a computer virus. When this chip interacted with other tech devices, like pacemakers or other external control systems like security doors, the virus was passed to those devices.
