not a virus


This bears very little resemblence to a w:computer virus. PC Magazine was the only source listed that identifies it as such (everyone else is calling it a Trojan horse), and I think they got it wrong. It makes no attempt to spread to other computers once executed, or even to install any software on the PSP (this must be done manually by the user).

It does appear to be the first malicious software for a handheld gaming console (although I expect there has been malware for other handheld decides).

I'd try to fix this myself, but it involves renaming the article, which I'd need to register an account for.
