H2-DNR6 Virus is a first
virus like no other
In what scientists are calling miraculous,
motorcyclists can actually get a flu virus via the internet.
You read it right. This is not your
ordinary file system virus, the virus is bacteria borne and can be
passed from one user to another electrostatically.
Here’s how it works. The H2-DNR6 is a
bacterial virus that is prevalent in dogs and can only be
transmitted from dogs to humans when both the dog and human are near
the exhaust system of a motorcycle. The motorcycle exhaust allows
the virus exhaled from the dog to propagate itself into the human
rider or passenger and the virus enters the human through the lungs
by breathing in both exhaust fumes and the dog's breathe at the same
So far that would seem a rarity and few
riders would ever have to be concerned. But the next thing that
happens is a first and would not have been possible before the age
of the internet and home computer.
The virus is the first such virus to be
able to be transmitted to other humans electrostatically.
Motorcyclists that get infected with the
virus and have computers using AMD processors can pass the virus to
other humans using similar computers running on the AMD processor
platform. If the rider's breath reaches the processor, the chip will
short circuit momentarily causing a series of algorithms and binary
sequences to occur. The final sequence then gets transmitted in an
email. When an email containing the binary sequence is sent to another
user with a similar AMD processor chip,
the email arrives and the binary code triggers the processor to
short circuit momentarily. At that point a minute electrical fire
occurs on the motherboard causing a discharge of noxious fumes from
the board. And the sequence in which the discharge occurs reforms
the flu virus and releases it into the air
around the computer.
Should the user be nearby, they can inhale
the fumes and become infected with the H2-DNR6 virus almost
unknowingly. The only tell-tale sign would be
the smell of the fumes and by then it is too late.
"This is both scary and fascinating at the
same time," comments US technology adviser Julius Genachowski. "Never
in my wildest dreams did I think that I would have to interface with
the Surgeon General on a situation like this."
When a human is infected with the virus
they can feel flu like symptoms making it unsafe to ride. Dogs
infected with the virus tend to sleep up to 20 hours per day. The
symptoms can last up to six months.
So far the virus has only been reported in
Washington, Oregon and Idaho. AMD has yet to do a recall and it’s
too soon to know just how many units are affected by this scenario.
A two minute video has been produced
jointly by the MIC, FCC and FDA to assist
riders with preventing infection of the virus.
