I'm highly skeptical. But, at least one reputable researcher seems to think malware might be jumping the "airgap" between computers and communicating via ultrahigh frequency audio.

Inspired by those great men of the salt flats, those men that in the 60s pushed the Land Speed Record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds. We decided to do what we do: build a bicycle, but this time, in the spirit of those pioneers of speed, build it to see how fast we could go…

The Worst Room is a blog exploring the seedy and unsanitary world of New York City's "affordable housing."
11-year-old Caine Smith was choked, beaten, harassed, and was called a long list of names simply because he had two moms and long hair. Instead of staying locked away and hiding, he stood up and did something about it.
