Sony on Recent PS3 Hacks, PSN Security Updates Incoming


Sponsored Links
189w ago - Today Sony has finally spoken out against the recent PS3 Hacks stating they plan to fix the security breaches through a series of PlayStation Network updates including fraudulently unlocked PS3 Trophies.

To quote from ComputerAndVideoGames.com (linked above): "Earlier this week, hackers completely tore apart the console's few remaining lines of defence against running unauthorised code, and subsequently released the first custom PS3 firmware.

Sony has remained quiet on the issue until now, having just told our friends at [Register or Login to view links]: "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it. We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

Hacking groups don't believe this will be possible though, telling the BBC: The complete console is compromised - there is no way back. The only way to fix this is to issue new hardware. Sony will have to accept this."

Sony went on to tell [Register or Login to view links] the following, to quote: "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it," an SCEE spokesperson told CVG. "We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

"We will fix the issues through network updates" and I'll get to the moon on my air-balloon.

Should be interesting to see how sony reacts in the next few months as more signed homebrew comes out. Personally i just want ps2 and ps1 playback the most since my actual ps2 is starting to die on me, think its the reading lense going bad.
