May 7, 2013 // 10:22 pm - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 hacker SKFU has now shared a few more details on PSNSSS codenames below for PlayStation 4 (PS4) / Orbis stores.

To quote: PSNSSS - Codenames

PSNSSS development continues. Since not all products can be found via a simple search, because some have a flag which forbid to be found this way; I implemented a browsing function.

While browsing the now 522 different stores I noticed a few codenames multiple times:


It is still unknown what they mean, but based on the information gathered until now it seems those are codenames for upcoming SONY platforms.

I hope to be able to improve the app further to get more details on this matter.

From sinsizer: It contains Information about the game/dlc or whatever the contentID belongs to. You can also find "apollo" links which are used for the store png's etc..blabla...

Finally, from JonahUK: "SWORDFISH" is used in mM, possibly to check for content:

Update: PSNSSS - Patched

Dear SONY employee,

Congratulations for finding the ridiculous mistake and fixing it It took you guys over 1 week and probably external consultation to solve this problem. The question is why did it take so long and how was it even possible to miss this important step of security which any skiddy can setup easily?

I don't blame you since I know how large your network is, but if it takes one guy hours and one damn huge company days to find such a vulnerability, something is wrong don't cha think so?

Sadly I have to tell you that it was part of the plan, simply to check your resources and capabilities. Sorry, had to know how much time I'd possibly have to grab the data from the really interesting sources We both know that this part of the network won't be used for long anymore. Therefor I will switch over to the new target now and leave you a well-intentioned advice:

Do not outsource all your data storages externally, most of them are even weaker than your own spaces.

Kind regards,

- SK

Sorry what? Unless you just went and googled Sony Swordfish and saw the youtube link... and didn't bother with the other two, I have no idea what you're talking about. < nothing. < TV, also unrelated.

Why would PSN have ANYTHING about Vegas on it? I'm pretty sure it doesn't, so the youtube link in Sony+Swordfish 's results is irrelevant. (First I should mention, I have the Fiddler Web Debugger set up so I can view what My ps3/psp/pc go to.)

You know when you start up the playstation store on your ps3? It connects to

Swordfish. In fact, that's how I found the picture of the swordfish ship. Type into your URL bar and hit enter.

Now see here: < Ctrl + F for Chihiro, it's in the tags section, right beside "Web store" basically. When the webstore just started I could see references to a chihiro server... but I don't see it being referenced at the moment. Maybe they took it out of the URLS? Anyway I'm pretty sure it still means the web store.

I'm pretty sure Chihiro is for their "web store" and Swordfish is for their ps3/ps4 store, the only one I don't have anything on is hammerhead. Neither Media Go nor my PSP on PSN bring any references to hammerhead. maybe it is something else...

let me start out by saying kickass app. Hope he releases it. But search the words with the word sony behind it. You wont be excited anymore. I'm surprised nobody else has done this and said anything. They are sony projects... but wait til what you see. Dont wanna lave a spoiler.

It is. I forget how I got to it but there's actually a picture of the swordfish on the swordfish server.

ahah, Chihiro's their internal name for their web-browser accessible storefront.

I think swordfish is probably PS3's storefront. Not sure about hammerhead.

Maybe they are starting to do reserach with current PSN Store and the PS4! Interesting indeed!
