Re: How easily can the PS3 get a virus?

we are talking about the dmz of your router, not setting up an actual network dmz. it doesnt compromise the rest of the network at all.

Lol I see you dont know anything about this **bleep** man, By putting something into DMZ On a Modem or router, all you got to do is brute force a port then you have full access to there HDD then you can take a A bot or trojan & upload it as a firmware for that router or modem

It's impossible as of right now. If it ever gets hacked then there's a chance someone could send you some files that would destroy your machine. But as of now you are free and clear.

OK, so lots of people are adiment that a game could never harm a PS3 in any way, although it contains software.

 

You are implying that software can harm a PS3, maybe even destroy it. 

 

So if software can be created to purposely ruin hardware, then perhaps it could happen accidently as well?

 

So someone is wrong, and I doubt its you.  Because we all know that viruses can ruin computers.

lmao,,again i say, you dont know what your talking about. so you are saying that having my ps3 in the dmz of my router would allow a "hacker" to "brute force a port" to gain access to the ps3's hdd and somehow install a program in my router?, dude, go read a book.

the ps3 is going to be virus prone soon. the kid that hacked the iphone just announced he hacked the ps3 last week. and the hack/exploit is, something sony can't patch. so were going to be screwed if he lets out, the information on how to do it.

It's all pure speculation at this point. Talk is cheap and all i've seen from this hacker fool is big talk with no resutls. Even if he does hack it there's no way it's going to work. 

All PS3's must go through the sony network. So any hacked machines will show up to Sony. Cheaters and hackers are the scum of the earth.

If you actually believe this tool, you're more ignorant than he is.

all in all, i doubt viruses getting into the ps3 will ever be of great concern. and if they do, then a new market will probably emerge for antivirus software designed for the ps3.

Actually people make the anti-virus first, then create the virus, or at the same time.

 

Viruses make people millions of billions of dollars.  The only way we will get a virus is if someone can sell an anti-virus.

 

99.999% of all viruses are made by the people who make anti-viruses.   How much money do you think MS makes off of Norton??????  Billions a year.

 

So in all likely-hood, Sony would make the virus if anyone, then magically happen to find the anti-virus which you can buy today from the PS Store!!!  Get it?

i want to download stuff from the browser since the PlayStation Store is limited. but i want to be sure that if i go to a bug infested site (accidently) my PS3 will remain unharmed.


 

until there is an anti-virus program for the console i have no intention of using it, period

 

Actually the PS3 does have internet security, which is like anti-virus isnt it? 

 

So I believe we already have anti-virus protection on the PS3, even if we dont actively use it yet.
