Good article but unfortunately all we'll get response wise is "Its Sonys fault!" Wouldn't have happened if they left other OS alone.
People seem to not realize that pirated games is probably the last thing on Sonys list of things to prevent.The PS3's security is hacked and reports are coming in that peoples PSN accounts are being accessed.Its seems to me that its a joke to some and as long as they are not logged in to PSN and they can play their "backed up" games it does not affect them right.
Mark my words.The same people saying "nya nya nya nya nya Sony!" will be the first retards complaining about the constant patches and potential changes Sony will put forward to try and combat this.

"reports are coming in that peoples PSN accounts are being accessed."


That is on Sony's PSN server, even with JB access, there is no way to access their secure database. Until I see a source, I highly doubt this is true.

Stop it, you're assuming PS NETWORK is hacked lol?
you think hackers ares stealing info?, what?.

The PSN is still active because it HAS NOT been compromised, what has been compromised was the PS3 OS, why are you assuming the PSN is hacked LOL???? it would had been shutdown.

Sony it has been weeks now, could it that they can't do anything about this?

The longer they wait the more this whole situation gets wider and more difficult to stop

I am sure the hackers already are thinking of how they
will make the next FW sony got coming into a CFW.

I find it odd that they still haven't done anything
and the hackers are releasing bunch of Applications CONSTANTLY.

Hackers/pirates/homebrewers are all raping
the PS3. Where is SONY????

If only Sony used a random number rather than "4".
None of this would have happened. Just one digit.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch the fail0verflow vids.

"If only Sony used a random number rather than "4"."

That was just an xkcd comic that they included in their presentation for illustration purposes/laughs.

The actual key is much longer than one digit, but since it was a constant, they were able to determine the number through algebra.

That's what I meant. Sorry if it came off that way.
Thanks for the link though, I'm sure others can make good use of it :)

All we need is for some punk to hack/mod KZ3 and the PS3 online is completely ducked. I won't be buying another online game until Sony say what they plan to do about it. It took mere days to screw up Modern Combat : Domination.
