There are no active threats that affect Playstation 3 consoles. Its file system is protected in such way that 3rd party applications are not allowed to tamper it.

Everything is susceptible to spyware malware and viruses but the PS3 is a very closed system so its pretty safe. I would imagine that if you were running another OS on it that your exposure would increase but as a general rule you are basicly safe from that kind of thing with the PS3.

i'll say this... there are definately viruses out there... i know because i was playing faceoff 1V1 with a guy in CoD MW3 And was beating him... before he quit (so i couldn't report him for hacking)he told me he had planted a virus on my PS3 hard drive that would wreck my motherboard in 72 hours... after looking up info here online... i determined it wasn't a threat, 72 hours later my PS3 crashed, and won't even "safemode"
