Sony's PlayStation Home has not yet been available for a full week and already hacks are devised to expand the customization options of the service beyond what Sony intended. Some of the hacks are actually pretty cool.

One uses an Apache web server and DNS redirection to allow players to watch their own videos on the display screens within the game and they can change text and music to whatever they desire.

One not so cool exploit gives malicious users the ability to upload any file to the Home server or delete any file from the server, which could be used to spread viruses around the Home network. Some say Sony may open the virtual world to third party developers to allow more customization. You can bet Sony will patch the holes already found soon.
