A laptop infested with the world's most dangerous viruses has sold for £1m online at action in the name of art. Reading a number of articles on this I note the laptop is supposedly air-gapped with it's internet and available ports disabled to ensure the device is safe. However how safe can we be and absolute that the laptop cannot be plugged back in? The terms of the auction dictated that the winning bidder should have no intention of disseminating the malware. 

I just hope this laptop remains a piece of 'art' and we don't see any bite back to this sale in the months to come. How such a laptop can be created and freely sold in the first place is worrying at best.
