PS3 Firmware Update Closes Homebrew & Piracy Hole Says Hacker


Recommended Posts


Sony’s latest firmware update appears to close the security hole in the PS3 that has caused so much controversy recently. Although it could be used to execute homebrew software, Sony’s fear is that the exploit would be used by pirates.

According to hacker KaKaRoToKS – aka PSFreedom USB-stick jailbreaking device creator Youness Alaoui – Sony have closed the hole with their latest update.

“For now, it looks to me (at first glance) that the ps3 has been resecured, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be broken again from scratch..,” he wrote yesterday.

In a sign of awareness that Sony’s lawyers might be watching, he added:

“Oh, before I get flooded : NOT BY ME! I don’t really care about breaking the PS3, I’m fine with what we have so far. I will NOT work on it!!”
