Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

Biohackers Encoded Malware in a Strand of DNA

Researchers planted a working hacker exploit in a physical strand of DNA.
I wonder if this technique will pave the way for sensitive information to be transported physically, instead of online?

Personally, I've always considered DNA malicious software.

It's the whole plot of the "Johnny Mnemonic" 1995 movie!

He wouldn't have had worry about capacity so much, or shoehorn out his childhood if he could've used DNA though. Definitely would've been a much different movie without Ice-T and a Navy Dolphin ooh and Henry Rollins!!! :-)

probably a distraction

check if it has google analytics

if it does is CANNOT be trusted
