my only question is why tell us about a security vulnerability when thay know we're hot on there trail and thousands of people held off the update because of all the latest finds and dumps on there system...
perhaps something like the Tiff exploit?
if so if i recall corectly the tiff exploit allowed us to load games that were forcing us to update firmware something like this would be of major significance to those of us holding off on FW updates awaiting to see what happens in the scene.
They wouldn't mention it if it was a big deal. it's most likely a very pointless and harmless security problem.
i assumed as much like i said they know that many of us won't update would be nice to find something like the tiff exploit to load games without a FW update again if need be. if i woulda known about that exploit when i got my PS3 i woulda never updated peroid between that and being able to use a proxy to connect to PSN there was never no need for an FW update.
