A game face looks a lot like a lobotomized face. With a mug like that, who has time to worry about web security?
While you are feeling like a tough guy shooting up friends and foes over the Internet, real bad guys could be tapping into your PS3 and stealing bank and other info. Trend Micro is offering PlayStation 3 users a set-it-and-forget it software solution, and it’s free—at least for a limited time.
Part of Sony’s firmware update, Trend Micro’s Web Security for PS3 can be set to block malicious websites, which can be accessed through the PS3 console.
The software is available now for free; after April 2008, you’ll have to pay for the privilege. No word on exactly how much.
