Prisoners Are Hacking Playstations With Stolen Computer Mice For Charging Cellphones

Gizmodo: Prisoners are finding much better uses for their IT classes' computer mice, plugging them into Playstations by USB, and rewiring the ends to power up their cellphones. (PS3)

why is only ps3 in the title? to ride the bandwagon that ps3 has been hacked
in reality this is a old procedure and VERY old news, which also includes using the 360 and portable music systems.....NOT JUST PS3

How the heck is this hacking? And, they could use this method on any computer with USB ports.

How is this "Hacking" the PS3? All they're doing is plugging a USB mouse into one of the USB sockets to charge their phones.

PS3 it only does everything
I just had to say that.

Prison is a cosy place for people these days, some have consoles and Sky TV in their cell.

Personally I would let those fuckers rot in a hole, but that's me.

why, they were just some kids that smoked some pot.

They dont just get given cell phones... they obviously get them smuggled in. they will run out sometime so all they are doing is charging them.

3 meals a day...a bed to lay my head...and a ps3 with a flatscreen......they got it better than alot of people right now and why...because they sliced your grandmothers throat for the 7 dollars in her purse.

Why the f**k do they have access to PS3s to begin with they suppose to be punished... not at a resort.
Shuklar  +   1774d ago
Damn, they do things differently in the UK.

Personally, I feel if the family of the offender or the offenders savings don't cover the costs of jailing them for the duration of their sentence, they should be killed. So tired of tax dollars being used on the lame and useless. And I'm Canadian...peace and love FTW? LOL

This ps3 hacking has gone out of control. If i were sony, I would just drop support for such a dead console and move onto ps4.

Nothing from your post made any sense at all.

These are at lax prisons like the one Martha Stewart went to.
Cook County prison for instance is a much more awful place. Those are pound me in the ass federal prisons.
DlocDaBudSmoka  +   1774d ago
see i always thought that fed prison is the cuswhy place and state prison is the hell hole.
mrlakadaddy  +   1774d ago
State prison is the Hell hole, the feds ain't shit
DlocDaBudSmoka  +   1774d ago
thanks for clearing that up. at least someone knows something.
dkgshiz  +   1774d ago
Not really.
You can have a good state prison and a good federal prison. Both have pound me in the ass type prisons.
herculese1  +   1774d ago
i wonder if they have internet acess on these ps3's. They could prob just make a video/audio chat call right from the ps3 and not need the cell phone lol. They would need a PSeye or some kind of headset but worst case they could send msg's.
