I nearly rolled out of my chair reading this. The innocuous gaming console, the dreamcast, is a newly feared utility to be used for malicious deeds.

Yet another thing to be concerned about when evaluating your network and it's security.

Nice post. It makes you wonder, what other vulnerabilities are there when your network is infiltrated not through the firewall, but through the front door.
There are probably ways to hook up even smaller systems, such as Palm Pilots, into networks to do the same thing. Makes you wonder if the new employee you just hired is really who they say they are.

I have been using my dreamcast as a DivxPlayer for ages. I'm just waiting for a new Divx 5.0 boot disc, I don't think I'll be using it to attack any systems..... I'm well enough using it as a divx player....

This is too funny.I always thought the dreamcast was cool as hell, but I never knew it was THAT cool.
