Sony Sues Graf Chokolo for 1 Million Euros, He's Still PS3 Hacking!

Shortly following Sony's raid on his house, Dukio (linked above) have now confirmed while posting a legal notice that Sony is suing Alexander Egorenkov known in the PS3 scene as Graf Chokolo for 1 million Euros and he states that he still wants to continue hacking the PlayStation 3 console!

The story is too old to be commented.

"I have a scientific mind and the knowledge is food to my brain. Without HV, Linux and FreeBSD kernel hacking my life is meaningless."

What a pathetic, sick, sad f*@#

Do yourself a favor and find some friends, get to know your family, and find other hobbies to make your life more meaningful.

phinch2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

"I have a scientific mind" put it to good use like finding a cure, or developing something that will help people in everyday life, otherwise your just wasting it

Washington-Capitals2519d ago

Say what you will about these "hackers" but these people have a gift that cannot be learned. "hacking" is like a talent and quite impressive. Some of these people should work for the government or wikileaks, they could really do some good in the world.

DaCajun2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

What an oxymoron, work for the government or wikileaks? LMAO one keeps secrets and the other can't shut up. Just in case some don't know what an oxymoron is so they don't think I'm insulting them. Oxymoron means putting two things together that contradict each other.

Hackers are social deviants that just want to create mischief or commit crimes, they do it because they think they are better than everyone else and can't ever be caught because they are too smart. The community that used to be called hackers when I was young now call themselves Modders because they don't want to be associated with those criminals that have turned the term hacker into something criminal.

Well, it is a shame that he appears like he is going to self-destruct over this. So it goes.

On the bright side, thanks to him, Ubuntu on the PS3 is now up and running.

Many thanks, graf.

"What a pathetic, sick, sad f*@# "

How is that "sick"? What's "sick" about it? Is he harming anyone? Is anyone in danger because of him? You make it sound like he's fiddling kids or something. All this guy has done is work on reverse engineering the PS3's hypervisor so that he can get a fully unrestricted version of Linux running. He hasn't actually released any modified firmwares or anything like that, all his work revolves purely around linux, which is not Sony's code. I don't see why anyone should have any beef with this guy, aside from the fact that he's a "hacker".

@Washington-Capitals

What gift they have? if that so, why they don't use that "gift" for GOOD Purposes and not just trying to screw the "common people" hobby known as Gaming...

ZombieNinjaPanda2518d ago

@Kushan

Exactly lol, but everyone here sees the word hacker, and automatically think they're scum because they 'hacked' the ps3.

Here's a PM to me from n4g member Andrew Ryan

"You're pathetic. Judging people on their lifestyles? You are a pathetic person. Just because someone enjoys kernel hacking and does not have much friends does not mean that you should insult him. Everyone has something they enjoy doing, even if it is illegal, that person does not deserve to be made fun of."

Obviously he's upset, because he's just a sick as Graf. You have no room to act all rightious when you have,

"A man chooses, a slave obeys."

as your quote.

So let me dig into you, since you wanted to come for me and scratch the surface, let me dig you yo grave.

Andrew Ryan
"I have respect for Hotz. He allowed me to jailbreak my iPhone and for that I thank him. Most people would agree, but since he helped hack the PS3 for good, they will disagree and be raging fanboys."

Obviously you're a broke, poor, no good thief as well. Hopefully you do hack your PS3 (if you can afford one) and Sony catches you and lock you up along with the rest of them.

Andrew Ryan
"No the firmware does not belong to you. But what's illegal about making custom firmware (your own or using someone else's) and getting rid of the old? Explain that to me. #1.3.2"

As I said he's definitely one of the ones we should be watching out for, I know Ken Felton from SCEA Music division so maybe I should pass his name along to them, and help Sony wait on him as well.

Andrew Ryan
"We PC gamers are a smart breed. If a developer takes their time with a game and creates an amazing experience, then we will buy the game. However, if a developer tries to milk his game for fast cash we will pirate it easily."

You're not smart, you're a thief like I said. You can't afford to buy the games you want, because you're a broke grown man, still living in your mom's basement, and have no idea what a life is. What would be smart is if you got up, and got a job, so you can afford to have a decent life, but like I said you're not smart, and you're probably mentally challenged and need to seek a therapist to help you with that.

Boosting self-esteem ("I have a scientific mind" - "I am so smart, S-M-R-T"), e-penor, a false sense of morality to make others' work public.....is it worth financial turmoil and the possibility of jailtime?

DK_Kithuni_712518d ago

The only good hacker is a DEAD hacker!

klado2518d ago (Edited 2518d ago )

SHOW THEM SONY, BILLIOMS, SUE BILLIONS OUT THEIR ASSES, AND TEACH THEM TO WHOM NOT TO GET TOUGH WITH...I give everything I earn just to see those suckers being destroyed, supporting it to the end.

Hope microsoft, nintendo, even apple back sony up, hackers are going down, down to their underground basement that is xD.

Lets see if these hacker supporter can cover this guy ass too, so many butthurts, bring it.

ZombieNinjaPanda2518d ago

Judging by your comment, your last statement applies directly to you.

slinky1234562519d ago

People need to see hackers ruin many games and need to stop supporting them, its sad for the industry and gamers of all when someone supports a hacker.

PimpHandHappy2519d ago

are hackers or even try 2hack the system

most of us buy and do not steal

bviperz2519d ago

Yet we all know all it takes is one idiot to ruin it for everybody else.

gamingdroid2519d ago

... and every hacker steals?

rezzah2519d ago

The hackers create the path for those to steal and not buy, even if they choose not to steal any content.

People usually just wait for a way for the system to be hacked then they use it as a way to get games for free.

klado2518d ago (Edited 2518d ago )

Doesn't matter how you bend it, your crunch it or bite it, hackers ARE ALWAYS LEADING TO PIRACY when it comes down to console, sry, simply true.

If sony goes down, better set a level of dignity, studios like that guy from kinectimal support sony, so to hell hacker supporter, we legal supporte are MORE.

NEXT failoverflown...bettery burry your asses LOSERS.

sikbeta2518d ago

@gamingdroid

No, every hacker don't steal, but heck, they help [email protected] pirates to steal :P

gamingdroid2518d ago

Then I guess we should also ban cars and alcohol. After all car accidents are enabled by car manufacturers and drunk driving is enabled by both car manufacturers and alcohol.

See where I'm heading with this? You don't simply ban or condemn something simply because it can be used for bad things. You punish the bad doers!

I really don't understand why people are so quick to restrict their own freedom?

Hackers aren't necessarily bad, pirates are!!!

blahblah2518d ago

@rezzah

so, let me try understanding this one as i'm somewhat hacker just not in the sense you think

1. hackers hack
2. people use this to steal
3. hackers are guilty?

lol, i expect all gun factories to be on trial for mass murders.

First GeoHot, now this guy. Sony is really trying to hunt down these hackers.

Dante1122519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

He messed himself up when he tried to blackmail Sony. Now he has to pay a fine for distributing hack info and he could possibly face jail time if Sony throws the criminal blackmail and extortion cases on him.

Gothdom2519d ago

not only that, but he needs help. Look at his blog post and change the word hacking for murder and you'll see how insane he is. Of course he won't kill someone, but he is fixed on one idea.

That's a mental illness.

jeeves862519d ago

I'm pretty sure if you replaced a certain word in every blog post with "murder" the author could be seen as a little off.....

Afro-Ninja22519d ago

change it to "burgers" then, and you'll see Gothdom's point still stands.

DaTruth2518d ago (Edited 2518d ago )

He messed himself up when he tried to (murder) Sony. Now he has to pay a fine for distributing hack info and he could possibly face jail time if Sony throws the criminal (murder) and extortion cases on him.

sony might think so. in real world... nope, sony is trying really hard to gather as much hatred from computer enthusiasts.

i know they made me move on the other side of the fence. i'm kinda torn between wii and pc now my self. can't decide on which one should i bet my hope. and it will happen the first time i fell lack of games (either sony used ones, or non sony new ones... anything for sony not to earn 1 cent on me after they removed OtherOS)

maverick11912519d ago

wow a mill euros

he said he will still hack no matter what i can see this law suit not affecting him

klado2518d ago

But his family...such a coward idiot, what a shame of a son if I ever had such a individual in my house, I as his father would really teach him some manner, but that is how the society is now aday, full of sociopaths people.

No affecting him you say? oh you poor fool, it will make him kill himself, he isn't even trying to hide his ass like the geosucker is doing...nice try though

maverick11912516d ago (Edited 2516d ago )

they have taken al his stuff away computer etc yet he has still managed to publish his so called ps3 bible

yes this lawsuit is gonna affect him in some way but he said he will still carry on hacking and from sony/police taken all his stuff/work away he's still managed to publish more work

so basically it wont affect him

his words "They don't know me at all I don't care about it and they might double it"

im not defending him i dont want these hacks publishing on n4g it promotes jailbreaking your ps3 more read the sites and his blog he's still publishing more hacks/news on the ps3 its not affecting him
