A Playstation 3 hacker says he has released information about reverse engineering hypervisor technology used in the PS3 after his home in Germany was raided earlier this week, reportedly at Sony's request.
Isn't that the same one that "threatened" Sony he'd release the HV knowledge?
yes its the same guy
It looks as though Sony is the one who IRL hacked this guy. Sony: "I'm in ur base, raidin' ur shit"
I still think it's funny how he threatened Sony and just weeks later he gets the knock on his door. I guess he said I am already screwed why not release what I have.
Sony is hunting these hackers down like its an FPS! BOOM! HEADSHOT!
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.
hack news is getting boring
But the QQ as a result never gets old.
Sony Gestapo, raiding your homes for hacks.
Oh noez, it is starting!! http://www.destructoid.com/...
I completely read the headline wrong. Thought it said hacker releases a bible for your PS3. That's what happens with no sleep at 5:30AM.
So that's why hackers wanted to hack the PS3 all along! For religious purposes! XD I hope Geohotz uses that excuse in court.
i guess sony got really fed up with hackers over the years. sony is having too much fun hunting these guys.
I'm sure it is a fun career to have a sony position as hunting hackers.
maybe it's a Japanese thing.
Talk about digging your own grave
No kidding. I don't get it, why would this guy release evidence of his work on the ps3? Is it petty vengeance that drives him? I should think that his actions will just feed the fires of whatever lawsuit that Sony is bringing against him.
Some people are just terminally stupid.
Access to the hypervisor, I wonder what 'the community' will do with it. George Hotz bought a $800 PS3 for 600$ from Sony, not for games but for his right to alter the machine so he could...copy games to his harddrive. He rightfully published his knowledge, the community came up with the jailbreak, games could be rented or borrowed, copied and played without the original game. That's all they are after, free videogames, and ways to cheat in them. Nobody is trying to use the Cell processor, the PS3 rootkey is being used for piracy and cheating only, and George published everything because of that. He knows himself it's not about his right to alter the machine, if rights mattered he wouldn't have made it so easy for others to fuck up the rights of the vast majority of owners of the machine, who want to enjoy multiplayer without cheaters, or the people that make the games for it and want to keep doing so. Graf_chokolo probably isn't a pirate or interested in Killzone 3, but his community is the same as Hotz'.
You couldnt be more wrong. Not everybody who hacked their PS3 are after free pirated games. If you remotely followed the jailbreaking scene you would see that the hackers are actually getting close to having a fully working linux that will use the power of the cell processor , ram and grapohics chip. Also theres people like me who want to play their non pirated games from the PS3's HardDrive. Playing GT5 fully loaded onto the HDD makes the game run smoother and everything loads faster than the little bit of the game they install onto the HDD from the game itself. I have no pirated games on my PS3 and I have no plans to load any pirated games onto my PS3.
I don't imagine that it was too smart of him to release information on how he reversed engineered the PS3. Considering that that sort of activity is highly illegal. He may be a good hacker, but clearly, he is also a moron.
Whatever happens legally, is kind of irrelevant,.. Sony is doing this explicitly for general prevention purposes,.. but few lives will get fucking complicated,.. The massage to masses is simple,.. You fuck with us ,..
This is crazy. When you taunt that your security is the best, few will beg to differ. GeoHot just got a gag-order on himself. This war Sony is trying to fight will last for some time. Fact is hackers will still continue to do what they do. Not just toward Sony, but technology as a whole period.
I don't mind people who "hacks" with their machine. But it's like Geohotz, and Graf-chokolo that SAYS "o we just do it for our own enjoyment" and etc... but then releases the info all over. what they say and what they do is totally different. look at Ben Heck; he's focused on hardware but he does what he wants and doesn't go crazy and release info on how to do it everywhere. He's one of few who's very popular and actually does that whole "o i'm just doing it for my enjoyment"
im starting to think these hackers have this in common. 1. no friends 2. no job 3. no girlfriends 4. no lives 5. spoiled 6. they think there cool
I am a hacker than,.. lolololollo!!
I have no sympathy for this guy or Geo (Media Whore) HotZ. I hope they all burn.
