    Soon, owners of portable gaming consoles will be forced to add an antivirus to their collection of programs.

    Symantec has discovered a trojan, which could be the first malware for portable console. While monitoring the PSP gamers’ chat rooms, Symantec discovered that a file, touted as a mod that would allow a user to run other applications than those provided by Sony, was in

    fact a trojan, Trojan.PSPBrick, which can render the console unusable.

    F-Secure also reported another trojan, which comes under the name of EXPLOIT 2G PSP Team V1.RAR. After it is installed, the malware will delete a series of vital folders on the PSP.

    I seems that some virus and trojan builders just get bored with creating diffrent malware porgrams for PC's and they found a new place to enjoy themself.
