PlayStation 3

It looks like Sony’s threats against the hacking community are very real – in case you were wondering why, graf_chokolo, a well known PS3 hacker had his home raided by the police. On behalf of Sony, the authorities found out where he lived, confiscated his PlayStation 3, miscellaneous files, and accounts related to his PS3 hacking endeavors. According to a post on his blog:

Guys, SONY was today at my home with police and got all my stuff and accounts. So be careful from now on…. Guys, i don’t joke, it’s serious.

And to prove it, i kept my word and uploaded all my HV reversing stuff.

Upload it everywhere so SONY couldn’t remove it easily. Grab it guys, it contains lots of knowledge about HV and HV procs.

So, this means that we’ll be still be seeing hacks around in the future, just not from the big shots in the scene. Or maybe from them but released under a different name, who knows? One thing we do know for sure is that when authorities try to crush an opposing force, they tend to fight back harder.
