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 kinda feel that one was forgotten dev error. most coders do constant for random when developing. takes one variable out and makes it easier to create working thing.

then again correct approach to this would be something like this

#if DEBUG
return(4);
#else
return(Random);
#endif
