I am not expert on how hacking works, yet...
but wouldn't an update reverse this

plus this is bad for all of us since everyone knows new firmware = bricked consoles /s?

I'm no expert either, but I know the reason the PS3 has been unscathed, thus far, is because of the multi-layer security system:

If he only has lvl 1 access... that means he has read/write access... but the Linux and Game OS are lvl 2/3... so there's really not much at lvl 1 from a homebrew or piracy point of view.

"hacked" is a bit of a stretch, "exploited" would be closer.

Or maybe I'm wrong, I don't think I am though.

"but wouldn't an update reverse this"

FTA:"The theory isn't really patchable, but they (Sony)can make implementations much harder."

If this leads to anything worth getting, Sony can expect a huge sales spike. Crossing my fingers for something like xbmc (the irony).

To patch the exploit Sony or any company for that matter would need to know where it is. I'm sure they might already be looking for it just to be on the safe side.

lol at Piratethom being one of the first, dude it will never ever

be hacked, PS3 is the only console that will never be hacked, quit the

dream and get ready to play 59.99 for years to come.
