    Technically it is not a virus but enjoy: http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/DS_Bricker
    Flashme adds some code to the start of the firmware (that can not be written to without shorting SL1) that allows you to still boot the DS (to then reinstall flashme/some firmware).

    Provided you get your roms/homebrew from a reliable source then you should be OK, this being said nobody to my knowledge has been hit in ages (I would possibly take a wager on over a year)
