Sony on Recent PS3 Hacks, PSN Security Updates Incoming

800°
193w ago - Today Sony has finally spoken out against the recent PS3 Hacks stating they plan to fix the security breaches through a series of PlayStation Network updates including fraudulently unlocked PS3 Trophies.

To quote from ComputerAndVideoGames.com (linked above): "Earlier this week, hackers completely tore apart the console's few remaining lines of defence against running unauthorised code, and subsequently released the first custom PS3 firmware.

Sony has remained quiet on the issue until now, having just told our friends at [Register or Login to view links]: "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it. We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

Hacking groups don't believe this will be possible though, telling the BBC: The complete console is compromised...

Today Graf_Chokolo announced that he has successfully exploited the PS3 hypervisor 3.15 through GameOS and dumped it, and plans to do the same for version 3.41 along with sharing more details soon.

Here is what he had to say on the matter, to quote: "I have just exploited and dumped HV 3.15 from GameOS

I used memory glitching like Geohot to get dangling HTAB entry but 2nd and 3rd stages are quite different. I used my knowledge about HV internals and created a simpler exploit for stage2 and stage3.

I didn’t use second VAS like Geohot. I used lv1_undocumented_function_114 and lv1_undocumented_function_115...

From PSGroove (linked above): In addition to PS3 security, the lecture will also touch on other consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and Wii.

"We will also go over hacks for the other consoles, including the JTAG hack for the Xbox 360 which made running homebrew code more convenient, and the cat-and-mouse games that Nintendo played with us to combat Wii hacks. We might also check out the security of their 'new' handheld console - the DSi."

For those of you unfamiliar with the Chaos Communication Congress, it is an annual meeting of the international...
 

Video: Codename: Rebug - PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project

1350°
197w ago - Today we have for you a video that shows off the work of Cyberskunk in a PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project dubbed Codename: Rebug!

He has been working on turning a retail console into a debug console through the use of firmware loader. The reason we are sharing this now is to show that it is nearly complete.

Most of this work has been done for quite some time just not shared with the public, but seeing its nearly complete you will get a preview of things to come. Once we have our full debug dumps you can expect 100% debug features on a retail console (currently we only have partial dumps).

I have left a few things out in the video that I will take screenshots of like *check although we have it enabled its grayed out, also auto download is now gone just like a TEST unit.

We will keep you posted as we make more progress in the coming days. Please do not ask when we will release this because we ourselves don't know when it will be finished.

System In The Video:

  • US - PS3 Slim 120Gb
  • Teensy ++ 2.0
  • 1Gb USB Stick (Rebug)





 

GeoHot Retires from PS3 and iPhone Hacking, Others to Lead On

1200°
218w ago - Today George Hotz aka GeoHot has announced he is retiring from Sony PS3 and Apple iPhone hacking, citing that the demand for updates from end-users will never stop.

In his exit from the PS3 scene, GeoHot left many legitimate PlayStation 3 users without OtherOS and without the promised 3.21OO PS3 Custom Firmware.

The good news? Others whom GeoHot shared the PS3 METLDR info and LV2 dump with are currently using his work to continue hacking the PS3 console, with rumors from IRC (for what those are worth LOL) indicating a public "end-user" PS3 hack may arrive before September 2010 from their camp.

Unfortunately though, just like the past Dark_AleX and "M33" PSP releases, an incoming PS3 hack will probably be from a fictitious group and won't include anything useful to PS3 Devs such as dumps, reversals, sourcecode, etc.

Hopefully once a hole that Sony can't block is public, other PlayStation 3 Devs will begin working on the PS3 though... and sharing all the juicy...
