    Quick and probably very stupid question, but i've only just started using the PS3 browser for web access (just use PC normally). Anyway, is there any risk of the PS3 HDD becoming corrupted when using the browser?

    Obviously on PC's you have anti virus, but is there security built into the PS3 or not?

    There isn't security built into the PS3, but I don't there are any viruses programmed to harm the PS3 machine - they're all for Windows. So you're safe - for the time being :smashin:
