The Sony Banhammer on PS3 JailBroken Consoles is Coming?


Sponsored Links
201w ago - A few months back it was first reported that a Sony ban wave was imminent, and today DJLO over at PSX-Scene reiterated the fact that it's only a matter of time until Sony begins banning PS3 JailBroken consoles.

To quote: Folks, Sniffynose pointed me to this. Since we are all updating now, you ALL need to read this and pay attention

On boot the system contacts the server and uploads the play list etc. this list alone is enought to get anyone that goes online banned as it shows the bootmanger etc. has been running. Here is the list and what they do, I port sniffed this a while ago before I went online with a retail unit >.> because I am not stupid hehe.

All these need to be blocked, web access will still work, updates will still work, but psn and any system messages/ads/communication will be blocked completely. For other areas someone would have to sniff the addresses again to compare. North American Servers are listed.

fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net > Update Server (sys updates)
mercury.dl.playstation.net > What's new ads
nsx.np.dl.playstation.net > playstation store preview
nsx-e.np.dl.playstation.net > ads
(main file exchange connections)
us.np.stun.playstation.net > on boot initiates connection
ena.net.playstation.net > SSLv3 connection after above connection
dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net > secondary update attempt (could force updates)
auth.np.ac.playstation.net > SSLv3 authentication server
(destination servers)
service.playstation.net (has multiple IPs if only the ip address is blocked)
(Error Reporting)
creepo.ww.hl.playstation.net (uploads crash reports etc.)

Almost all connections cannot just be port blocked, the port will continue to increment until it connects, you have to block the entire domains. Also a big point is that ALL computers on your network need to have these blocked not just the PS3's MAC because if you are running a proxy for example to get patches, the computer you proxy to will just allow the connections right out to the open unless all local IPs are blocked from these sites as well."

What about UK servers anybody?

I guess you'd simply replace the "us" parts in URLs with relevant for your country or region - most probably the same like during spoofing the update info - e.g. "uk" or "eu". I'm going out now but once I'll get back I'll try to dig it up from the log on the router Just diable ANY access to sony servers in your router or replace the "us" parts with stars ("*").

I got my PS3 connected to network at home, but to keep it disconnected from outside world I've just typed in random DNS and Proxy adresses in network settings, so it connects me to LAN at home, but when tries to connect to internet it gives me error. Do you think Sony can still track me?

maybe, thats why i leave my jb ps3 offline, even off my home network.

Sony was setting you guys up, and they must come on these boards, with gifts that are just trojan horses in effect.

Blocking all these servers is silly...

Can we just start generating a whitelist of servers that serve game patches? Those are the only ones we want to access anyway, right? That'd save everybody a bunch of work.

Why it would be less "silly" than doing it other way around? IMO there would be more servers for updates than those to block ...
