As new and improved anthropomorphic and pseudo-biological robot toys are hitting the market, and as they inevitably get wireless connectivity, a great opportunity exists for infecting them with identity stealing viruses.

Record and transmit audio and video of face images, pins being entered, credit card bills, shoot amateur porn -- the possibilities seem endless.

       Not very familiar with these toys, but apparently they've been banned on military bases due to their ability to learn and repeat.

       True, but it's nothing to do with security - more a matter of preventing Lieutenants developing inferiority complexes …
