Games The Playstation 3 has been cracked so hard even its momma felt the blow. "Approximately a half hour in, the team revealed their new PS3 secrets, the moment we all were waiting for. One of the major highlights here was, dongle-less jailbreaking by breaking the PS3 loaders, giving complete control over the system. The other major feat, was calculating the public private keys (due to botched security), giving users the ability to sign their own SELFs."

it's hard to believe that they would fail that badly.

i was watching in disbelief especially about that crypto part with constant "random" value.

i think that might put a big question mark over quality of many sony security technologies.

still i don't think it would all be possible without being to run linux on the device in the first place. it might take a few more months/years if it weren't for that - the outside layer of encryption seems very solid.

it's the inside design that really sucks.
