Hacking computers is commonplace today and is at the forefront of national security concerns.  But looking into the the future, hacking DNA is an emerging threat.  Cells are living computers.  DNA is software.  Our bodies are networks.  And they can all be hacked.  Imagine a crime scene where your involvement has been spoofed.  (See a video on counter-spoofing here.)  Or what about genetic spam?  In this article, appearing in the June issue of WIRED UK, cyber security expert Marc Goodman and I look at what some of the future genetic hacks and attacks might look like.  Beautifully photographed in the SF Dogpatch area by famed photographer Art Streiber.
