Can Xbox one get viruses?

#31bob15xPosted 3/10/2014 6:27:23 AM
the psp had a virus specifically targeting it. You can google it. But that is the only time I remember. But then again the psp was about pirating.

Again,
The only claim of virus on xbox1 was ^ that ^ guy being mis-directed thru his browser.
That was it.
New link?

"Eating crow" is slang for being wrong.


Understood.

New linked worked. I was a tad disappointed that topic was locked so suddenly. I don't know why it was, it was just closed the next day I looked at it. I really wanted that topic to reach 500 posts, lol. I was hoping it would but oh well. I bet someone will turn that around on me and claim that was the intention of the whole topic.

Uh..we'll probably see homebrew and launchers before seeing malware on xbox. The smart hackers would probably sell their exploits to hardware manufacturers to make DRM dongles. The genius ones keep it on the DL to steal your cc info.

Wouldn't that require the XBO to store the CC info locally afaik the data is stored only on MS' servers.

Just create a viral stealth key logger pkg that emails you a text file.

Funny to see the XDF on this thread when it was MIA after the video was posted on the other thread.

Then again what can we expect from them? Running away, not facing facts, ignoring the truth bringers, and changing the conversation is all they know how to do when confronted with the facts.

Wouldn't that require the XBO to receive the cc info? I would have thought it just acts as intermediary.
