PSN Password Vulnerability Warning for PSJ/PSJ Clone Users
Not putting this up here because I want to be obedient to the new changes to the DMCA law, but just because I saw it a 2 nights ago, was like...wow, way to go Sony.
If you have shared your dev_flash[x] with anyone else, or you were thinking of sharing it AND you have you PSN set to "remember my password", your dumps will contain your PSN ID and password in plain text.
Of course these this file would be terribly difficult to access otherwise (at least without physically having your system in the hands of a skilled dev). If anyone wants to find that file and enlighten everyone as to what it is, do so, or by request I can find out... but right now, I just want to chill.
(PS Jailbreak, PS Groove, PS Freedom, PS Liberator... so many alternatives )
If I remember it's the file xRegistry.sys which is stored in /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash2/backup
Not only that but if Sony would really want to start hunting down all the JB users or anyone tinkering with their PS3 I'm pretty sure they can identify (and eventually block or even brick) the particular PS3 even without your PSN ID and password included ...
Thanks for the headup! +REP
Good warning , hacked2123 ! I've see this file the first day of ps3ftp release. I was talking with my friend about the risk of this info. You can see all info used by ps3 ,mac adress bt/ether/wifi /ds3/headset, your ip , your pswd and mail adress of all your account and maybe the creditbank card if you use one to buy on ps3store.

Very nice to have this info.Sure no one wants to share there private account informations + Rep.
Nice heads up
If you plan on sharing your dumps, the easiest thing to do (in linux) is grep the files, see if any match your username, then you can edit them!
I lost my psn password but its still on my ps3. How do I read the file? I already installed everything needed and its working fine (I use filezilla)
never mind already fixed. My wifi signal was gone for a sec so i couldn't open the file.
