22w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared 10 things PS4 fans need to know about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4 today!

To quote: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which launches September 30th on PS4, wastes no time in revealing the blood-curdling tragedy that befalls Talion, a Ranger of the Black Gate.

Having witnessed the death of his wife and son, his own life is ended by a cloaked agent of Sauron, who whispers dark words beneath a lashing of rain and then cuts his throat.

But Talion is not afforded the luxury of death. A wraith from the world of shadow returns him from the dead to seek vengeance on Sauron's forces. And just minutes after Talion's first troubled steps back onto Middle-earth, the land of Mordor opens up into a breath-taking gallery of missions, power struggles, and awe-inspiring magic.

With just days to go before Shadow of Mordor launches, let's take a look at some things you might not know about this open-world action RPG set in one of the most iconic fantasy worlds in history.

To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part III: I/O Vulnerability Analysis

After we checked the environment of the PS4, we should continue with more detailed analysis where, how and what we can im- & export from the system to actually affect it.

Let's see what our general I/O possibilities are first:

USB

Have you noticed the application "SHAREfactory" on your PS4? One of it's interesting features is to import music files via USB. Vulnerability? Maybe. At least FFmpeg has all actual patches applied.

SHAREfactory USB music import. Also useful as mediaplayer

Another USB feature is the import and export of screenshots, gameplay videos and savegames. Worth to check I'd say.

HDD

As expected the HDD is encrypted so you can't do much here, yet. But remember the PS3...

Sadly there's no blueprint of the PS4's filesystem as far as I know, so how would we know where we want to go?

We need to collect as many information about the filesystem and it's environment as possible to even be able to determine our possible research targets and vulnerabilities.

For any PlayStation platform there are 3 good and legit ways to go for:

Way 1: Open Source Software & Open Documentation

Any Open Source Software used on the PlayStation4 is listed at http://www.scei.co.jp/ps4-license/.
A quick look through them reveals that many licenses force SONY to distribute copies of the used software which for the PS4 are:
