143w ago - Spanish PS3 developer DemonHades has inadvertently leaked Sony PS3 and Blu-ray Service Manuals for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system as a result of his Web server's security being compromised.
PlayStation 3 developer circles have had access to the documents for a few years so the information they contain is not new, however, the confidential SCE documents have just reached the public's eye today.
This news comes just under a week since word of the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip first surfaced.
Finally, below are the leaked file names for those curious, however, they are intended for use only by licensed developers.

Well here's a news flash for you! Sony do know about the PSJB they have done since the 1st video from Oz mods came online. same thing goes for the leaked "service documents" so strongly advising us not to leak them is kinda pointless as this isn't the only site that has talked about it.
There are free disassembly guides that are readily available on the net. So, why should I pay for one?
And, you know, these leaked manuals and old certain software were already in the hands of a number of known hackers/developers for years. Some of these may be public right now, but are these information enough to be worthy of breakthroughs in terms of both PS3's knowledge and security? Not really.
I strongly advise you guys not to leak these information if you have them. The more leaks, the worser it will become for Sony because these information are strictly confidential (no matter how breakthoughable they are). Sony probably knows about PSJB, but if they ever find out about these leaks, well, all hell will break loose.
