    Remember Acoustic Modems?

    Oh, no! More hysteria!

    Oh man you got me there! But.....the virus would have to go in through the microphone connection, not the speaker connection. And there would have to be software on the computer listening to the microphone input for the audio stream containing encoded digital to audio signal.

    while back some guy jumped my wall and tried to hack me with an axe ...no harm done though , he didn't get a change to plug it into my pc...my left and right hook antivirus took care of that
