Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

What he did is find the private key that allows code to appear trusted to the device.


From the talk that I watched - They didn't have to find any key or do any hacking to decrypt any files or bypass any of the security to do witht he signed pair/trusted key. They simply asked the PS3 to do it and the PS3 did due to a fault in the way Sony had assumed the code running was authenic and not used any protection in the key signing process.

If anyone should be having law suites it should be the developers of games vs Sony for lack of basic security.

Who in their right minds uses a salt number of 4, every single time ... oh yeah Sony do. And THAT is the reason why people can use the key to sign any code.
