Sony PlayStation Vita Encryption Flaw Uncovered by Hacker SKFU?


Sponsored Links
156w 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

As I searched PlayStation Japan... I found nothing. No software updates, I found a list, but no downloads. I'm still not fully into this...

not really, it has more to do with what saviour is saying. Some programs are made on a rush and a lot of validations are skipped and put into a todo list if infact the program is useful... Why code validations(after all its code, and time to code it) if the program is not useful in any meaninful manner. Next step if the program proves to be useful its to add all those validations to have a nice program that gives out errors and informs the user of whats going on.

Hardcoding stuff like generating 30 files is okay for a proof of concept, alpha or beta... after all if you give it the firmware it will populate those 30 files and developers can find whatever information they are looking for. Bottom line, it gets the job done.

Uhm, i'm still curious about "every file gives 30 files" May be a fake program just for fun, or a prerelease of a fake just for remember us "I will be there when PSVITA will be released, and try to hack it?"
