Sony PlayStation Vita Encryption Flaw Uncovered by Hacker SKFU?


Sponsored Links
139w 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

My guess is it may be based on PS Vita (official) developer tools, according to guys on IRC SKFU has had some PS Vita connections for awhile now.

Another update to version 1.01: streetskaterfu.blogspot.com/2011/11/ps-vita-fw-xtractor-101-update-linux.html

Here a little update for the PS VITA FW xTractor:

Because of some requests I compiled a linux version. The download is available below.

As well I added a simple check for the input file validation. On linux I didnt bother to fix graphical issues, yet.

Version updated to 1.01.

Download 1.01 WIN: [Register or Login to view links]
