PS3 hacker Geohot threatened with restraining order by Sony

Sony’s not a company to ignore legal action when it’s needed and after the recent exploits of Geohot and fail0verflow regarding the PS3, Sony has ordered a restraining order to get the root keys and exploits taken offline. The legal action apparently allows their computers to be seized too. Definitely not welcome news for the hackers involved in the PS3 hack, though it’ll be important to see how this works out in the long run, especially since the hacking community is generally quite active when it comes to the PS3.
