Bird 'flu can infect your computer!

Sometimes a headline just catches your eye, and sense of humour. In Computer Weekly this week there's an 'in brief' article about a bird 'flu computer virus (a Trojan in this case). Could this be the first case of a virus mutating in to the virtual world? Could we see computer viruses jumping the technology/species boundary and infecting humans? Would geeks be more susceptible? Will NAV fit in a syringe? And would Mac users maintain their smug expression with their usual mantra - "PC viruses don't worry us".

p.s. I'm a Mac user - with anti-virus software of course!
