Sony PlayStation Vita Encryption Flaw Uncovered by Hacker SKFU?


Sponsored Links
148w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU reports that he may have uncovered a PS Vita encryption flaw.

To quote from his page: Since I finally have access to a retail PS VITA, today I started with some basic tests.

After a complete freeze of the system within the first 5 minutes after unboxing (*always happens to new consoles 4 me rofl*), I went on and noticed that there is a problem with the VITA's encryption functions and was able to decrypt some test files directly via the system.

I will post updates as soon as I have news

The one thing i'd love to be able to do is read MKV's (with soft encoded subs -eg. horriblesubs, etc etc-) and WAV files (or MP3 at 320kbps and/or over)

make this possible devs plx!!!

Yea it's stupid to post everything to same time you've found. Looks like "look what i can i'm such great". I don't mean skfu especially. I mean every one posting such things and give them a chance to patch with next update before something good can be done with it. This happens also in past for the ps3. But skfu made a few things for the ps3 which he self claimed potential to get into the system and for what i know it wasn't him who has finally made the doors open.

I assume this is with fw 1.00 - those are known for fast freezing - also not that much patched yet as 1.50 / 1.51 FWs ... so it might be that flaw is already gone by now.

Yeah, they probably spent more time on making a new memory card for the Vita rather than ensuring that their system is secure.

Ah yes soooo sweet. If they would have spend the same time on the real security they have spend for locking users out or to spy on them this wouldn't be happen. That's one of the things i mean. Spending time to force us and spy on us but impotently to deliver a system that is nearly really good produced and have just a few unimportant flaws.
