202w ago - About as exciting as recycling the PSN bypass blocked again news, today Engadget reports that Kevin Butler has inadvertently [Register or Login to view links] (now removed) the PS3 METLDR Root Key- specifically the HMAC Dongle Master Key that GeoHot first posted before Sony took legal action for hacking the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: "Oh, honey. Sony PlayStation's (entirely fictional) Kevin Butler holds many (also fictional) positions within the company, but apparently none of them require him to keep up with (very real) news events.

What's a spokeperson to do but confuse it for a Battleship reference and retweet the entire code? Obviously someone let him in on the joke, as the tweet's since been removed. At least Sony won't have to subpoena for his info here. Geohot, we hope you're laughing."

It happened but was removed afterwards as Kevin Butler did it without realizing what he was retweeting basically.
