PS3 Completely Hacked
 

 
Article is below. In layman terms, these guys obtained the keys needed to sign files for the PS3. Now custom firmware like the PSP is completely possible. There will be no need to jailbreak the PS3 everytime. Sony cannot close this security flaw. Sony cannot change the keys using a firmware update. So now the hackers will be able to make custom firmware to play all games. If Sony updates, the hackers will update. Much like how the Wii scene is now or the PSP scene.

fail0verflow! - 27C3 PS3 Exploit Talk
Well the big PS3 Exploit talk is now officially over at the annual 27C3 conference. All the big names in the developer scene world (Bushing, Marcan, Sven) and gave almost a one hour talk regarding Sony's EPIC FAIL!


Once the video is up on the CCC FTP site, I add it to this post so those that had problems viewing the Live stream or not awake at the time can review it.

But basically they talked about how the PS3 totally failed in security, by botching the pki implementation it became possible to calculate the keys needed to sign everything. PUBLIC PRIVATE KEYS, and replacing the "revoke-list" with super-large one (overflow) during the bootup NOR flash at startup, giving them full control of the PS3 system.

Live Demo will be available tomorrow during the CCC's Lighting Talks (will update this post once the time is listed), and possible tools for developers to be released within a month.

The 360 console is now more of secure system then the PS3 after all these years!

Basically every software used to run on a PS3 is signed. So for instance every firmware update is signed. Every PS3 game is signed. PSN games are signed. The key used to sign these files is supposed to be private. Not located inside the PS3. Only Sony headquarters is supposed to have that key. Due to Sony being an idiot, these hackers were able to calculate the key value. Now they can sign any file they want to run on an unhacked retail PS3.

So next up is create a custom firmware and sign it. Update to the custom firmware and do whatever you want with the PS3. Their security has totally failed. The Xbox 360 is now more secure than the PS3.

Because every single piece of software is signed with this key, Sony cannot just change the key. If they change it now, all PS3s out there will become useless. The key cannot be blacklisted.

but why would they show their faces on camera? I don't get this. Why would they setup an f**king powerpoint on this? wouldn't they be better off staying behind computer and doing this?

Nothing they are doing is illegal. You can hack your own console. Nothing wrong with that. They did not release any Sony code. Any illegal stuff will happen behind the scenes and these guys will never take credit for the illegal activities. They will just release the method they used to crack the security, which is completely legal. Sony cannot do anything at all.

the power point presentation showed both the negative and positive uses for this hack. for obvious legal reasons they put piracy on the negative side. hackers take pride in doing this sort of thing and to be the first to fully unlock the ps3 is a huge f**king deal that no one has been able to do in 4 years. they make the custom firmware but what other people do with it there not responsible for.

9 days is a while?


more than a hoax. alot of people are backing this. but im not in the PS3 Scene so i cant confirm either way


ill give you one thing, is that, alot of money is involved in these initial hacks, so if s**t is being faked, theres the reason.

edit: not in the ps3 scene "yet"

I mean playing backups is not a new feature unlocked in hacks. That interface may be, but the underlying principle has been around for a while. Im sure its the part of the reason they shut out other os, which wasnt just 9 days ago. I believe it was also recracked via firmware hack, which was patched swiftly. Playing backups is very old news.
