Sony PlayStation Vita Encryption Flaw Uncovered by Hacker SKFU?


Sponsored Links
134w 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

Man, you're on it SKFU. Perhaps there will be v5 by the time I get a Vita in my hands.

To quote: PS VITA Firmware xTractor 2.01

Linux version compiled and attached below.

I just updated the PS VITA FW xTractor, changelog is attached below.

The 2.00 version had a problem setting the filenames correctly as the 1.0+ updates have different files than the older ones. Anyway, enjoy...

  • Filename fix
  • Download FW added
  • Minor stuff

From his page, to quote: And here we go with version 2.00: As the last version was hardcoded for a specific firmware, this new version supports any PS VITA firmware file.

As well graphic bugs which appeared for some users should been fixed now. As a little extra I implemented an information tab, which shows various info about the loaded firmware.

Information about the single files will be added in the next release, to be honest I was to lazy to implement it for now

In the next days I will compile it for Linux and MAC, so anyone can use it.

Thanks for the support I got, to everyone who deserves it.
