Well there was this hacker group in Romania that made viruses. They ended up turning around and now have a virus defender software.
They could've kept going making viruses and shut down the whole internet they were that good but no, they now kill the viruses they first created. They know how to make them so they are perfect to be the ones to stop them.
The best programmers started off as hackers. So its stupid not to hire good hackers.
Didn't Facebook hire GeoHot? And Microsoft gave him a Windows phone. He must've done something right for 2 big companies to be interested in him. He's proven he's a good hacker by hacking the so called unhackable console. Sony's stupidest move was to sue him and not hire him.
Thats also the problem with Sony. They are run by stupid people with too much money.
Don't ask to me, ask to Sony japan Obiously, it's stupid fight someone who can make you be a leader. Maybe PSN mess never happend now. Maybe Our ps3 was a perfect unhackable console, and 3.41CFW was never going to happen. Nah, better the nephew of Mashimoto
Here is a layman's guide to doing yourself by lunuxx via ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=Talk:Dumping_Metldr
How to Use:
Ohai I'll tell you guys howto use mathldr (I like to call it that, its kinda catchy) This is pretty safe (if you know what you are doing, and do it right) just dont go crazy with it, its possible mess your eid up if you attempt to rehash it and flash or attempt in any way to replace your eid. If you plan on rehashing your EID make sure to have a flasher and a good backup of your flash handy.
1. otheros++ with ss patches (yes the ones that cause trophy errors, just update when you wanna play games again and dont complain)
2. linux on your ps3 (im using ubuntu 10.10)
3. a unpacked copy of your flash (which you can obtain by using glevands dumpflash.pkg via: gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/dump_flash.pkg) and an unpacked copy of ofw you will need the following files from these:
EID0 (you will need to split eid from your flash ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=Dev_Tools#dump_EID0.sh)
Now you have a copy in your home directory for safe keeping, congrats you've completed about < 10 mins of actual work.
There you go keys are in 0x00 to 0x20 (first 3 lines) So now you get code execution on metldr at the best time possible because your code executes right after metldr copies the root keys from 0x00 to 0x30, which means you get to dump these too. (Although they are hardcoded in metldr's code anyway)
The first 2 lines are erk the 3rd is riv and together they are eid0 like captain freakin planet
Btw this does not mean you get 3.60 keys etc or newer games but it will help you get some nifty things to do some new stuff... also please be advised that if you are on 3.60+ you will need to downgrade with a flasher to do this, also if you have a unit that shipped from the factory with the metldr.2 (new metldr) your sol at the moment theres also a nifty program on the dev tools page to turn your hex into key its called hex2key.
Sony's network services got hacked because Sony ignored the first rule of computer security. Vigilance. They were running old software with known exploits. It doesn't matter how good a "hacker" you are, if you are running old software, it makes it easier for someone, somewhere to break into your system(s).
Hmmm i think that logic friend , any corporate need someone with good curriculum vitae to take a strategic position and more important that person is trustworthy. If we talk about hacker, what about china? most of the equipment we have have been made in china,not just because to cut their cost but more important is to avoid being hack and having mass produce of clone.
For sony itself i think that's one of their strategic plan in marketing,they create a gap in their system to make it vulnerable from hacker... Look at their sales after their console being hack,it exceed their market expectation and always become leader in console war.
most importantly they can produce more and more console to the market. They use console hack as an excuse and play a good clean company by using the law to calm the game dev or any of their affiliates. everything just like their stakeholder wants...
