    Can the Wii get a virus?

    Alright, I'm sure somebody else has thought about it, but wouldn't it be possible for the Wii to get a virus if it was on the internet 24/7 and had opera so it could be on the web. Do you think it's possible to get a virus onto the flash memory that messed up the system. And since Nintendo wants to encourage homebrew, couldn't someone, in theory, put a virus in a game so it was disguised? Just something I was thinking about...kind of a concern...but maybe not.


    (by the way, no pun intended, it just happened )

    if people come up with codes for the wii then it might, but i sure hope not
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I dont think it can have a virus, well the virus for windows, Macintosh and Linux have to be made for those systems, in this case the Wii needs to have a virus codified only for the wii, I think maybe the only viruses could be the publicity ones. Only those ones I think could really harm ur Wii are ones created by someone and sended to u (maybe he hates u or something)

    Yeah, its going to be more like a computer now. So now (hopefully )it will get a lot of viruses to make it bomb sooner

    well, if there's money to be made in it, then a virus might appear...maybe one that figures out how to access the accounf that you use to pay for the VC games...if the VC requires a credit/check card it could get dangerous

    Lets hope Nintendo has some great virus protection for its Wii.

    Since it has internet connection, the Wii can potentially be infected with a virus. However, viruses are not normally designed to infect consoles.
