PlayStation 3 "hacked for good" - LV0 encryption keys leaked

EGSonikku (519478) writes | about 2 years ago

Sony 1

EGSonikku writes "Sony has had a back and forth "war" with PlayStation 3 hackers for years, however it now seems to be a war Sony has now officially lost with the release of Sony's LV0 master encryption keys:

"The latest PS3 break is being dubbed unpatchable and the final hack...this hack isn't giving you an exploit to use against a programming hole. It's giving you Sony's so-called LV0 (level zero) cryptographic keys...With the LV0 keys now published, you can — at least in theory — replace the LV0 loader and run whatever you like, because you can authorise your own CFW (custom firmware). The PS3's most-secret cat is out of the bag.""

PS3 done. Xbox360 next? (1)

I've always wondered why there was mostly silence about Xbox during Playstation attacks. Microsoft is just as bad as Sony i guess.

Maybe none of the hackers got any silly Xboxes...
