Sony PSP Virus Discovered


Symantec Security Response experts identified Thursday the first Trojan that targets Sony Playstation Portable systems, Trojan.PSPBrick, as a Category 1 threat (Category 5 being the worst).

As of Thursday, there were no confirmed infections. The virus is designed to look like a downloadable hack that lets users run their own games on the PSP.

Once installed, it deletes system files and breaks the PSP. The user must choose to download it—which means you're safe if you don't go around taking files from strangers. - Sony PSP Virus Discovered - Yahoo! News
