Trojan detected for PSP

The world's biggest security software maker, Symantec identified a malicious program for Sony's PSP. It is a Trojan and the first found in gaming devices. Symantec said that it won't affect average users. The file is named as EXPLOIT 2G PSP Team V1.RAR which allows users to run their own code on their PSP, but infact it destroys the handheld. Symantec researchers identified the Trojan when monitoring online chat-rooms used by the gaming community.
