FSecure Warns Of PlayStation 3 Jailbreak Trojan

For those who follow PlayStation 3 discussions, it would have been hard to miss the discussion about a new "jailbreak" for PS3.

News of a USB dongle that breaks the security model of the game console to enable execution of third party software (as well as pirated games) have been going around like wildfire.

A group of hardware hackers claim they are about to release the first product to allow gamers to play homemade and pirated games on the PlayStation 3.

The group called PSJailbreak says it will release a USB dongle containing software that allows users to save games to the console's hard drive.

Not surprisingly, online miscreants are trying to exploit the excitement. According to FSecure, the real USB jailbreak gadget is not a USB drive. But it looks like one. So now someone is distributing a Windows program that claims to creates a jailbreak USB device out of a normal thumb drive. All you need to do is to download and run the program.

In reality, it drops a backdoor. FSecure has already detected it as Trojan:W32/Agent.DLEN
