Sony PlayStation buffer overflow

Date: September 12, 2006

Sony's PlayStation Portable handheld console could be infected by malicious code using a buffer overflow vulnerability, according to a warning from an antivirus company.

Panda Software said that proof-of-concept code already exists that exploits this flaw and works on all versions of PSP firmware that can view TIFF files.

"The vulnerability is particularly dangerous as it could be exploited through malicious code programmed for this purpose or even directly by hackers," said Luis Corrons, director of PandaLabs.
