Will my DS get bricked if I played a Trojan infected rom?
I have never heard of a Trojan infected rom.
The only time i've heard of a trojan on the DS is with NesDS and the rom called Trojan. I miss that game. :-\
There are two known trojens created to destroy the ds, both attempt to overwrite the ds firmware. If you have installed flashme on your ds, some recovery code is written in part of the protected area and provides access to some slot-2 cards to reinstall flashme. otherwize your ds can be bricked.
However, these trojans have not been seen in the wild and you have little to no chance of comming into contact with them. Nobody has infected any games with code like this, and i doubt they ever will.
Also, though, were those trojans actually in Roms? or were they homebrew that happened to release them? As far as i can remember, they were more or less bricker programs... not so much as Trojan-infected-Roms.
We won't know that until R4 1.19 came out, it said to brick the DS that use R4-clone.
or it might be in next big game from SE to punish pirate
My DS is not flashed, I'm just using a flash cart(DSTT to be exact), I'm just worried that some geek might post a trojan virus disguising as a rom.
scroll down to darkfaders walware section & the trojans are there http://darkfader.net/ds/
You needn't be too concerned if you get your ROMs from an active site. If you're still concerned, use a program like Rominator which has a CRC checksum feature that you can use to help ensure that your ROMs are unmodified.
Get your DS flashed if you're up for the risk. I flashed mine, technically the worst a virus can do to me is erase my microSD and temporarily brick my DS until I can boot a reflash of the firmware.
As far as I know, the trojan didn't spread far and there is a VERY VERY VERY little chance of getting it.
And my NOD32 and Symantec AV Corporate both claim to detect it.
If you're really concerned about it, check the filesum of everything you put on your flashcard...
I actually have both of them in a folder on my Linux drive.
what are you doing keeping viruses?
I have over 200 viruses in a folder. None anywhere else.
Why don't you just use a trusted DAT (such as Advanscene) to check your rom's CRC integrity? That way you will ensure you will never get a rom that is not "clean"?
wow... a trojan in a ROM... apparently you people don't know what a TROJAN virus is...
A trojan virus hijacks a system, and allows remote control of a terminal... the virus itself is not destructive, only the end user (or hacker).
A trojan virus alone cannot hurt ANYTHING. It just sits there, waiting for someone to connect to it to give commands.
Some of the early trojans were able to make screen shots, log keystrokes, copy files, and for fun, could send documents to your printer, and open and close the optical drive, among other things.
No. Just no.
