You might remember a few days ago the folks at fail0verflow claimed that they managed to come up with a permanent PS3 jailbreak, thanks to some dodgy security measures. The team promised to release some PS3 development tools for hackers out there, but the popular hacker, Geohot (who offers a jailbreak tool for the iPhone) has found what he claims to be the root keys to the PlayStation 3. If these are accurate, then hackers out there will be able to trick the PS3 into thinking that the program that they’re trying to run on it is an approved piece of software, meaning that custom software or pirated games could be good to go too.
