- Following up on his previous
update, today Sony PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU
shared an update on PS4 hacking discussing the state of things Part III featuring I/O Vulnerability Analysis with details below.
To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part III: I/O Vulnerability Analysis
After we checked the environment of the PS4, we should continue with more detailed analysis where, how and what we can im- & export from the system to actually affect it.
Let's see what our general I/O possibilities are first:
Have you noticed the application "SHAREfactory" on your PS4? One of it's interesting features is to import music files via USB. Vulnerability? Maybe. At least [Register or Login to view links]
has all actual patches applied.
SHAREfactory USB music import. Also useful as mediaplayer
Another USB feature is the import and export of screenshots, gameplay videos and savegames. Worth to check I'd say.
As expected the HDD is encrypted so you can't do much here, yet. But remember the PS3...
