Hi, cfwprophet and myself are looking for someone willing to test something on their PS4 , would be a great deed for the community, no risk for your PS4 at all !
We just want to test something before the update. Would be great if someone is willing. Pls reply here to me ASAP. Thanks for your time.
Below are the details, as follows: Rumor: PS4 vulnerable to Heartbleed? by hellsing9
I will keep it short and simple. We need someone with a PS4 to test something. It's kinda odd that rushed attempt from Phony to label a rumour an upcoming update. (mandatory).
I will not use any kind of links but PS4 uses Openssl and nanossl (or at least what zecoxao said) Not sure though. Either case we don't know which version of OSSL uses. Which cfwprpht is/was researching, even if it the test fails. Well at least they tried.
What we need?
Someone willing to test something BEFORE mandatory update appears. This will not mess up your PS4, nor will open enable PS4 to do something. It's just a test.
So it is about the Heartbleed Bug as Helsing9 mentoined which i want to test on the PS4. But in case my PS4 have a Hardware Error and i can't run Any App or Any Game the result of the Test was negative.
The thing is that we need something on the PS4 that uses the OpenSSL lib, expecially a importend part of the lib need to be used. Mostly this part is used for Internet communication to test if a connection is still alive. There for it is mostly a part of the Web Browser. And there for i can't run the Web Browser on my PS4 i would like to Test the Heartlbeed Bug on a PS4 that can run the Web Browser.
What you need to do?
Well, it's simple just run a .bat on your Computer and wait till something happens or not.
Do it need something to set up, some files?
Yes. You can get the needed files here: [Register or Login to view links] / Needed Files (Mirror)
After that just extract those 3 files on your Desktop. Go to your PS4 and boot into the OS, log in and run the Web Browser. Now open a Command prompt and navigate to your desktop and run the .bat with the paramaters -yourIP- -StartPort- like that: testps4ssl 188.8.131.52 0
You can find your PS4's IP under [Option/Settings >> Network >> Show Network Status]
How do i know if the Test has come to a result?
The bat. will stop and show you some info in the command prompt window. Addittional in the result.txt some infos will be stored and it will be renamed to "resultWithPort.txt"
If you come to a result please post your info's here and let us all know.
ps. The command prompt should look like this:
This Error Message is Ok and just tell's you that it couldn't connect to the port we have definied.
For linux users, you can check deroad tool: Which was not written for ps4 itself and the code is not fully from deroad.
[Register or Login to view links] (this is my version) it perform the attack N times (default 200 times)
if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then
echo "I'm testing the port"
for port in `seq 1 65535`; do
echo "port=" $port
./hb-test.py $1 -p $port -P >> /dev/null
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo "PS4 port found! port= $port";
if [ $PORT_FOUND -eq 0 ]; then
echo "PS4 port not found! Something may went wrong..."
echo "I'll test the Heartbleed bug. (see the result.txt file)"
./hb-test.py $1 -p $PORT -t 1 >> result.txt
echo "hb-ps4 <IP PS4>"
