Rumor: SKFU Claims DriveClub May Brick Your PS4 Blu-ray Drive, Details

550°
1w ago - Following up on his previous PS4 hacking update, today PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU posted on his blog that DriveClub may brick your PS4 Blu-ray drive with details on the rumor below.

To quote: DRIVECLUB may brick your PS4 Blu-Ray Drive?!

Driveclub is currently facing a lot of problems including a few delays, server-side problems and more. Today a friend from Hong Kong told me about a major bug which he faced due the release day of Driveclub.

Since he is PS+ subscriber, he has access to the free PS+ version of Driveclub. He added it to his download list, waiting for the next time he'd be online.

Meanwhile he also purchased the disc version of Driveclub. Full of "GREATNESS AWAITS" thoughts, he turned on his PS4 and went online.

As the Driveclub PS+ version was already in his download list, it began to download. While the game was downloading, he wanted to use his disc version and pushed it inside the PlayStation 4's Blu-Ray drive.

It seems that no one actually ever tested if a user would do that. The disc drive of my friend stopped working right away. Ejecting and inserting works fine, but the PS4 won't...

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:

USB

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.

HDD

As expected the HDD is encrypted so you can't do much here, yet. But remember the PS3...

To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part II: Environment Analysis

Sadly there's no blueprint of the PS4's filesystem as far as I know, so how would we know where we want to go?

We need to collect as many information about the filesystem and it's environment as possible to even be able to determine our possible research targets and vulnerabilities.

For any PlayStation platform there are 3 good and legit ways to go for:

Way 1: Open Source Software & Open Documentation

Any Open Source Software used on the PlayStation4 is listed at [Register or Login to view links].
A quick look through them reveals that many licenses force SONY to distribute copies of the used software which for the PS4 are:

  • [Register or Login to view links]
  • Mono VM - "For request, please send e-mail to: pss_opensource_info AT scei.co.jp...

6w ago - Following up on his previous update and recent PS4 game dumps, today Sony PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU shared an update on PS4 hacking discussing the state of things Part I featuring TitleID's and more below.

To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part I: TitleID's

Yeah I'm still here! A lot of information was collected, analyzed and misused in the past months. I want to share an overview with you and I'll start with "Part I: TitleID's".

This post is not entirely about the PS4, it will include some information about the PSV as well.

Why are we interested in TitleID's?

Both the PS4 and the PSV use the known system of TitleID's to identify games and apps. Most of them are visible to you via either the Livearea on PSV or the menu of the PS4.

Some of them, on the other hand are only used as references for internal modules or similar and are therefore hidden. The most interesting ones are those which are linked with applications you shall not see and are just implemented for tests, were forgotten...
 

SKFU Pr0xy: How to Use a Proxy Server with Your PS4 to Sniff PSN Traffic

46w ago - Below is a guide from wololo on SKFU Pr0xy covering how to use a proxy server with your PS4 to sniff PSN traffic for those interested.

To quote: How To Use a Proxy Server with Your PS4 to Sniff PSN Traffic SKFU Pr0xy

The following guide covers the very basics of how to install and run a proxy server on your local computer to use with your PS4. This allows you to study how the PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers, for various reasons.

A proxy lets you block some of the traffic (which has been useful in the past to let users access Netflix on their PS3 even when they didn’t have PSN access), or replace some of the traffic with connections to your own server (useful for being able to connect to the PSN on a lower firmware), or simply because you’d like to know what type of information your console sends to Sony’s servers.

Charles proxy is probably the most popular proxy around here, but it is commercial software. Thankfully, scene dev SKFU has been creating and updating his own proxy server for windows, and this is the tool I will be showing today.

There’s nothing really complex with installing...
