    As I was readding the wiirus thread and read what mario wrote that they should bring anti-virus to the wii. Well i thought maybe nintendo could make it as a channel or a upgrade. I geuss it would be free or maybe just 500 points.

    So whaat do you think?

    No.

    The Wii can't receive viruses from the Internet as you can't download anything off the net.
    Also, if your Wii DID end up with a virus, it doesn't come under Nintendo's warranty. ;)

    I would be happy if the wii could get a virus, since that means theres could be a exploit we can use to run homebrew, without a modchip.
    Not all virus's are totally bad.

    90% of viruses are from Microsoft
    7% are from Firefox
    and 3% are others
    the chances of your wii having a virus is 3% because it runs from Opera Browser which may i say isn't really "Major" in the internet provider business..
    So my answer? No

    Well it's nice to hear the chances of virus's are very slim because I really don't want mine to get one.
