First PSP Trojan Reported

Zonk posted more than 8 years ago | from the watch-what-you-click dept.

Evangelion writes "PSP hackers beware! According to 1up.com today, Symantec has identified the first PSP Trojan in the wild. Known as Trojan.PSPBrick, it turns the PSP into, well, a brick. With buttons. Users have to download and install it themselves, and as a result it effectively breaks the PSP."

Re:Well then... (3, Insightful)

RootsLINUX (854452) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733339)

Wait, so I actually read TFA and I didn't see any details here. If the hack takes out user buttons, what's to stop it from taking out all other I/O? How do you remove a virus when you have no way to actually get your machine to interact with anything in the real world? The symantec report says removal is "difficult". What if someone accidentally downloads this virus, then isn't able to use their PSP anymore because they can't wipe the memory clean? Who is responsible then? Does Sony have to give them a brand new PSP? Do they have to physically open the device and set a jumper to clear the memory? I want to know the implications of the virus, not just "there's a virus, and it's bad".

Re:Well then... (1)

Paul Slocum (598127) | more than 8 years ago | (#13734413)

Read TOFA:
"Trojan.PSPBrick is a Trojan horse that deletes critical system files on a Playstation Portable device, preventing the device from restarting correctly."

That probably means that it's impossible to recover without debugging hardware.

If the hack takes out user buttons,
It doesn't just take out the buttons; it flashes the firmware with junk, preventing the PSP from even booting.
What if someone accidentally downloads this virus, then isn't able to use their PSP anymore because they can't wipe the memory clean? Who is responsible then?
The user is, of course. The trojan is disguised as a firmware downgrader, and there's no way in hell that Sony is going to reimburse a person who was trying to "hack" their PSP. I'm pretty sure that there's something in the PSP boilerplate that covers that, but I'm too lazy to look.
Do they have to physically open the device and set a jumper to clear the memory?
There is no jumper. The memory has to be rewritten by an EEPROM programmer, which I doubt that any normal user is going to have access to. Sony won't send you a new PSP, and I don't doubt that, if anyone out there were able to reflash the PSP's firmware, Sony would be suing them under the DMCA or something.

In other words, this trojan turns your PSP into a $250 paperweight/brick, hence the name.

Re::ugh2: (1)

PhotoBoy (684898) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733979)

The tin foil hat community has theorised that Sony themselves wrote this virus as a way of scaring PSP owners into updating to the latest 2.01 firmware. The latest version prevents you from downgrading to firmware 1.5 and running emulators and other homebrew games. Because the latest firmware doesn't have a web browser or any other "must have" feature, they need something to spur people into updating...

Re::ugh2: (1)

default luser (529332) | more than 8 years ago | (#13734763)

But in REALITY, we know that there are white-hat, and black-hat hackers.

Once the community finds the vunerability, it is free game for the white-hats (firmware downgrader) and black-hats (firmware toaster). You should feel lucky that a remote exploit hasn't been found (yet).

Sony has provided a fix for the vunerability, because they have TWO significant financial interests. Most of you think there's only one (locking down the system to enforce licensing fees from developers), but there is another very serious one: keeping the system secure to avoid lost sales and a class-action lawsuit once users are left holding a bunch of hacked-up bricks.

Since the console is wireless, security is extrodinarily important.

Simple solution to this one (1)

Daysaway (916732) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733206)

"Users have to download and install it themselves"

Don't download and install it. It's not like they can creatively name an email attachment, and if it is turning PSP's into bricks, then you are not going to get it from another PSP.

Aside form all of that, it is interesting that there is already a virus out there at all for this handheld device. Although 'brick'ing a psp is just completely malicious, and has no effective purpose.

I give this virus a 2 out of 5 on the creative scale. (+1 for being the first)

Re:Simple solution to this one (4, Informative)

snuf23 (182335) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733494)

It's not a virus. It is a Trojan horse [webopedia.com] . A program which claims to be something beneficial but in reality just messes your computer up.

"Don't download and install it."

I'm sure if it's listed as "PSP Trojan Horse - turn your PSP into a useless brick" - nobody would download it.

Re:Simple solution to this one (1)

Dark_Lord_Prime (899914) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733998)

As I mentioned in another post above, a Trojan Horse is a program that masquerades as something it isn't, in order to deliver malicious (read: virus) code, which then causes havoc.

Re:Simple solution to this one (1)

AvitarX (172628) | more than 8 years ago | (#13734041)

Virus is usually to describe something that spreads (is contagous) and can be a benign (excpet the spreading part) proof of concept for example.

Trojan Horse must be malicious or detrimental, and does not spread at all.

Malicious is not read Virus, Malicious is Malicious, and Virus is Spreading.

Re:Simple solution to this one (1)

snuf23 (182335) | more than 8 years ago | (#13734708)

"in order to deliver malicious (read: virus) code"

malicious
adj.

Having the nature of or resulting from malice; deliberately harmful; spiteful: malicious gossip.

A Trojan horse just has to be harmful and deceptive, not deliver a virus. A batch file with rm -rf in it named "coolfungame" could be considered a Trojan horse.
Now if a virus infects a program file and executing the program causes the viral code to be executed, some people consider the infected file to have become a Trojan horse.

Re:How is this a Trojan (3, Informative)

SpottedKuh (855161) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733507)

How is this a Trojan? Your answer:

"In computer security technology, a virus is a self-replicating program...", from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Virus [wikipedia.org] .

"In the context of computer software, a Trojan horse is a malicious program that is disguised as legitimate software.", from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trojan_horse_(computi ng) [wikipedia.org] .

In this case, the PSP malware is not self-replicating, and it is something you have to download and install on your own (which claims to let you run your own games on the PSP). Therefore, it is a Trojan rather than a virus. A destructive one, yes, but still just a Trojan.

Re:How is this a Trojan (0)

Social Engineering (1)

SpottedKuh (855161) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733433)

I think this article makes a very important point, if only indirectly. There are two common ways of looking at the "virus situation" on non-Windows platforms, both of which are wrong.

One line of thought, perpetrated mostly by the Anti-Virus companies, is: "Of course there are viruses for [insert name of system they now have a product for]!" They love to scare people into thinking viruses are everywhere, and can get onto your system no matter how careful you are. Buy our product!

The other line of thought runs along the lines of: I run [OS X | Linux | BSD], therefore I cannot get malicious software on my system!

Unfortunately, too many people forget that anyone with the slightest bit of skill can write malicious software for any system, if they combine a bit of social engineering...
#!/bin/bash
echo Now type your password to install free screensavers!
sudo rm -rf /
That's exactly what this PSP malware is. Don't think of it as some crazy, rampant virus, because it isn't. It's just like the stupid bash script above. But just remember that, if you're going to install something as root, you better trust the source, no matter how secure (or, in the case of the PSP, obscure -- in that not much software is written for it) your OS is.

diamondmagic (877411) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733540)

They COULD have manufactured the firmware updater in the ROM, not flash/RAM/wherever. But no!

If there were a virus like this for the DS, it could totally spread like a virus. Imagine:
"Oh, COOL! I thought [game] wasn't out yet! I'll download it right away!"

Now imagine coupling this with some sort of wireless buffer-overflow exploit (that does not exist, as of yet). The horror!

The DS only runs on its' wireless connectivity when the user requests it (you can see when it's on by looking at the blinking power LED). So I highly doubt that a wireless exploit could spread very far.

Removal Instructions (2, Insightful)

Vampo (771827) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733582)

      1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
      2. Update the virus definitions.
      3. Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected.

thanks Symantec, nothing like a clean WinXP on my PSP again :)

Re:Removal Instructions (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#13733691)

Do you think that, just maybe, the new XP virus defs might find the Trojan in the local drive of the computer system before moving it to the PSP?

Symantec is saying that they have figured out a signature for this little tool, and will seek it out, but it'll only be effective if you scan it before you use it. You know, what you should do doing now before you go running all the warez downloaded from BT or eMule.

Come on, people, think. They aren't telling you how to remove the problem. They are telling you how to protect against it.

If you brick your PSP, you're likely to just go out and buy another one. And a lot of types that do this kind of hacking aren't buying a lot of software anyway, so it would just cost Sony money.

Ominous (1)

Teppy (105859) | more than 8 years ago | (#13733844)

Though this trojan may be primitive, the fact that it permanently destroys* the PSP shows that PSPs are one buffer overflow away from an effective hardware destroying virus.

Imagine a place with a high concentration of WiFi-running PSPs, such as E3, GDC, etc. A virus makes a connection to another PSP, infects it remotely using said buffer overflow, does that a few times, and then 24 hours later kills it's host.

* Best I could tell, there's no way to remove it from the PSP. The "removal instructions" on Symantec's page appear to be for removing the file from the PC you downloaded it to.

Ok a trojan isnt a good thing, but the fact that PSPs have become soooo popular that there's people out there actually writing viruses for it?

I mean think about it, only the most popular consumer products have viruses. Windows? Tons. Mac? Basically none. Does that mean you can't have a Mac virus? Of course not, just means so few people have Macs that no one's out there bothering to make viruses for them. Cellphones? PocketPCs & other PDAs? Lots of those can access the internet and are user upgradeable, but how many viruses do they have for cellphones or PDAs?

I think this is just a sign that the PSP has finally arrived!

wouldn't it be possible to just put the files back on, assuming that you read the code and realize that you just installed the brick, before rebooting it?

releasing the "anti-hack" could possibly even lure our whoever is responsible. . .
eg, if sony were responsible (unlikely I know) but they would probably try to sue the anti-hack maker or something. . .

Accoding to impress [impress.co.jp] (sorry, in Japanese), SCEI has no intention to provide support for users whose PSP are broken due to this trojan horse, saying this happens only when they are using their PSP in an (unsupported|illegitimate|unauthorative) way.

Noone bothered to write me up a nice article when I introduced my Trojan.PSPThrowItAgainstTheWall hack :/ It made any PSP basically useless too.

How long till a exploite is found in the browser (1)

When and if a exploite is found in the PSP browser that lets you run code it will only be a matter of time for this to be used.

The only good thing about that is then sony would have to fix bricked PSP's.

I also herd something a while back that Team Xcuter was making a way to reflash PSP's
