I can see it now anti virus protection for your alarm clock so it doesn't end up waking you up to early or to late. LOL anyways i've never heard of that before for a hdmi cord.You would have to know absoulty nothing about hdmi or how any type of wiering works.IDK how a virus could make noise in a cord unless you got it through your pc and you got those sound malware ads on your pc with random ppl talking and typeing in the background on your speakers.
