Games Sony has responded to the recent cracking of the Playstation3, and the company claism that they can fix the issue - which ought to be impossible considering the scope of the hack. "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it," Sony said, "We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

Highly doubt it. There ARE multiple signing keys used for different things, and not all of them have been figured out yet - but the mechanism for figuring them out has been proven and it is simply a matter of time to collect them all. I imagine a highly competitive hacker's version of Pokemon is taking place as we speak... They should name the signing keys for different consoles after Pokemon characters, that would be fun ;)

I vote they call the PS3 game signing key Alakazam:

"Std Alakazam #1 weakness: low defensive stats yield little longevity. Std Alakazam #2 weakness:no way to heal status ailments with Recover and Leftovers, moderate longevity and low special defense."

Since the original xbox signing key was never cracked, just worked around through exploits it should be Mewtwo:

Mewtwo weadness: Mewtwo is weak against any bug type move, any dark type move and any ghost type move.

If you ever played Pokemon this will make perfect sense, if not move along - there is nothing to see here ;)
