Video: GeoHot on PS3 Hacks at Nuit Du Hack Conference in Paris


200w ago - Yesterday some videos were posted of GeoHot's iPad, iPhone, iPod coverage from Nuit Du Hack in Paris, and today we have some videos and a slideshow (PDF) of the PS3 hacks segment from the conference courtesy of malow82.

Forum user xrayglasses attended one of GeoHot's scheduled conferences, and stated the following to quote:

"He's booking for talks at 3 cons, I only got to see the one he just did in France. He's labeling his talks around PlayStation 3 security, and when he comes on basically talks about i-products for two hours with a mention of PS3 in the last 10 minutes, literally in the same details as his blog.

In videos of it on youtube, you can hear people there laughing when he integrates his ego into his talk. I don't think he realizes what a small fish he is in the RE community.

He even said publicly that he was contracted to reverse the iphone which really puts his level of intelligence into perspective considering the repercussion that has with anti-trust laws.."

Maybe the reason why he has not released anything is because he has nothing.

When you crack something, don't you then run a demo showing the crack working so people can actually believe what you say you can do you have actually done....?
Well, he actually did, he showed us that he can change themes using his cool exploit, isn't this demo enough?! (*cough* this was already possible *cough*)

Anyways, I guess after 3 months we can call it a fake?

You know, hacking isn't about showing off, it's about sharing information and methods.

I mean, the only thing George managed to do was to kill the ps3 homebrew and demo scene, thanks to the paranoia of corporate HQ. And he didn't need to actually demonstrate a hack to do that. Just put out a "believable" rumour.

..which really is all he did. But whatever.
