    It has been almost two weeks since we have had PSN, whilst Sony gave us some answers, they didn’t give much away and the weren’t completely honest either, the FBI is investigating, senators asking for answers and now a United States House Of Representatives Sub Committee has sen a list of questions to the Chairman of SCEA, Kazuo Hirai:

    Robo Hobo has released a new PS3 homebrew…a port of the well known classic DOOM. The game works pretty well overall and there might be minor bugs present, but non the less some nice piece of homebrew to add to your collection - and a break from the PSN news :)

    To quote:

    Here is the first release of PrBoom for the playstation 3. I’ve pasted the readme below. This release isn’t without it’s issues, though they mostly rest in configuring. Game play should be quite smooth, most features you would expect are implemented (eg saving, loading, music, minimally tested netplay). Any comments on how you would like to see this improved are welcomed.

    The readme+download can be found at the links below.

    Rumor has it that the PSN database that was stolen from Sony has now hit underground forums and is for sale. The database contains 2.2 million Credit Card Numbers with the much-needed CVV2 code. Some underground “financial” trading forums make note of the database for sale.

    The database was also offered to Sony to buy back but Sony didn’t wanted to pay money to get back what belonged to them. Thiefs don’t buy things back from other thiefs, that is not how it works. Criminals go after you if you steal something from them.

    Rumors are also that a very big part of the German database is stolen, which makes some people point to Graf because he is also German. Personally I think Graf has problems enough already and has nothing to with it, but maybe someone wants to make some money to pay for the “criminal” 1.000.000 euro claim

    Kevin Stevens, Security Researcher tweets that this indeed is NOT a rumor and it IS for sale (but nothing to confirm if database is legitimate or not).

    Discussion about #psnhack and possible speculation about the hackers being from Europe Logs - efnet - #ps3dev - 2011-04-26

    trixter, people I know had a shell on the psn servers

    did you know that sony didn’t disable the function that sets the psn server under maintenance ?

    The hackers that hacked PSN are selling off the DB. They reportedly have 2.2 million credits cards with CVVs #psnhack

    Sony was supposedly offered a chance to buy the DB back but didn’t #psnhack

    @mikkohypponen That is what is going around on some underground forums. The DB contains pretty much everything

    @the_pc_doc That is what I thought but the guys selling it say that they have CVV2 numbers

    @RiquezJP Well not properly securing your server breaks compliance as far as I know.

    @RangerRick Yeah, this information about the CVV2 numbers could be bogus. The guys selling the DB could just be making it up.

    Supposedly the hackers selling the DB says it has: fname, lnam, address, zip, country, phone, email, password, dob, ccnum, CVV2, exp date

    No, I have not seen the DB so I can not verify that it is true

    Who do you think hacked PSN? The Wired writes a great article outlining the possibilities of the culprits behind the PSN attack. To quote:

    It’s one of the biggest data breaches in history. Now that Sony has come clean — sort of — on a computer intrusion this month that exposed personal information on 77 million PlayStation Network users, one obvious question remains: Who pulled off the hack?

    In the old days, the answer would be simple: some kid did it. But today’s underground is more complicated — a slew of competing players with different agendas and techniques. Here’s a quick rundown on the likely suspects. .. (more…)

    When Sony Computer Entertainment, removed the OtherOS function, we posted about the various court cases, well now we have PSN that has been down and out of action, due to a massive security breach.

    We have the first court case taken against SCEA/SCEI for negligent data security, violations of consumers’ rights of privacy failure to protect those rights, and failure and on-going refusal to timely inform consumers of unauthorized third party access to their credit card account and other nonpublic and private financial information.

    Here is a quote from the court document:

    KRISTOPHER JOHNS, on Behalf of Himself and for the Benefit of All with the Common or General Interest, Any Persons Injured, and All Others Similarly Situated,
    vs.

    Plaintiff KRISTOPHER JOHNS (“JOHNS” or “Plaintiff,”) brings this action against SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA LLC (“SCEA”) and SONY NETWORK ENTERTAINMENT INTERNATIONAL LLC (“SNEI”) (collectively, “SONY” or “Defendant”), on behalf of himself, all others similarly situated and the general public, and alleges upon information and belief, except as to his own actions, the investigation of his counsel, which included, inter alia, review and analysis of Defendant’s press releases, Defendant’s websites, web forums, and various news articles, as follows:

    I dont know how to say this in a nice way, but a few of you may remember me complaining about my credit card info being used fraudulently back in February of this year.

    The fraudulent charge on my credit card got me looking into logs I found on my router that appeared to be the PSN scanning my home network, to which I ended up making this tweet.

    offending IP, are being traced by my ISP, and the one that worries me Source:65.197.244.172,3478 which resolves to

    [DNS] Canonical: a65.197.244.172.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com Numerical: 65.197.244.172 (aka psn)

    My ISP has comfirmed the request originated from ^ IP, but will pass further details to the team investigating the fraud at my bank.

    Once again, my details have not been connected with my account for over a year, and the fraud took place today, even though the account in question has only ever been used on the psn (once last year!!!).

    It appears sony are lying and that details are held for far longer than when you delete the info from your ps3, and that the info is readily obtainable by the hackers/script kiddies sthat know how!. (phoned sony less than half hour ago to report the incident and was told that the details arent kept (clearly they are).

    Unfortunatly in as a result of this incident, it now clear to me that sony really arent encrypting any data, and once the incident has been dealt with by my bank, depending on the outcome, I may persue further charges against sony.

    Deleting your account info/card details clearly doesnt work to stop this from happening, so I can only advise you keep an eye closely on your bank statements (for cards/accounts that have been used on the psn). and look for small amounts that you havent made. (in my case £1.74 to a travel agent (likely a fraudulent site set up just as a front to hide the fraudsters real intentions). I was lucky and my bank phoned me as they were aware I had not used my account for quite some time, and they felt something wasnt right.

    In the interest of security, I advise anyone on efnet #ps3dev (or other chans) to definatly check your accounts for today, as all the other offending IP’s originated from there, which gets my spider senses tingling that a spy/fraudster is among you!

    My router log is as follows, with my IP removed (it has been changed since pasted, but my IP is xx’d out.

    This is not coincidence at play, as there is no other possible way for my details to of been obtained, as all info is securely disposed off at my end (and in actual fact stored inside my property till it can be disposed off safely and securely). I have not lost the card, (it is still shredded in my drawer (and will remain there till the account in question is closed).

    @BBCWatchdog, I think you have a case to investigate here!!!

    Log’s that enabled me to figure all of this out are here http://www.pastie.org/1599044

    @sony shame on you!! getting ****y gets you exposed, security like this should never be overlooked, and nothings unhackable!!

    Source of quote

    As no one knows when the intrusion on Sony’s network took place exactly, or what info was stolen, I thought I would make this post, to alert users of the PSN, that even though it appears the breach was only found recently, it could of been several breaches over a much longer period of time.

    My advise to all users who have used bank or credit cards with the PSN, is to check back for at least 4 months, and look for small charges that you weren’t aware of. If you find any charges, report them to your bank immediately, and ask for a new card to be sent out and for a watch to be put on your account for any other suspicious transaction that may take place in future months. It also is not a bad idea to get your credit cards linked to PSN to be cancelled/changed as well and for future PSN purchases you should use PSN cards.

    Yesterday it was announced officially by Sony that some darn hacker(s) may or may not have managed to creep in their system and run away with 77 MILLION peoples account details including passwords & credit card details. This has caused a massive poop-storm with sceners and fanboys alike calling for answers but mainly for Sony’s head on a pike.

    Well just as you think it couldn’t get any worse for Sony, it has been rumored that Sony may be trying to get out of being held responsible for this total blunder using their own PSN T&C as a escape clause HOWEVER the “ICO” (A UK Information Rights Body) has decreed that if the user-data was held on servers within the UK then Sony may face a £500,000 fine to add to the bill.

    To quote from MCVUK News:

    It has emerged that part of Sony’s PSN terms and conditions claim that the company is not liable for any loss of user data!

    “We exclude all liability for loss of data or unauthorised access to your data, Sony Online Network account or Sony Online Network wallet and for damage caused to your software or hardware as a result of using or accessing Sony Online Network,” the terms state.

    However, speaking to Edge, the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) claims that Sony is accountable to stipulations outlined in the UK Data Protection Act which says that companies are obligated to keep users’ details secure.
    “While we are unable to say where the data is being stored at present, if it was in the UK, this clause would not free them from their obligations under the UK Data Protection Act,” ICO stated.
    “If we found a breach, one of the actions we could take would be to issue an undertaking, which is an agreement between the ICO and the company that if they are handling personal information they have to bring about set improvements in order for them to be compliant with the act.
    “If the company is not compliant with the act within a certain time limit, further action would be taken and we might consider an enforcement notice or issue a monetary penalty.
    “For serious breaches of the act, we can issue a monetary penalty up to £500,000.”

    Many of you who have been in the scene for a long time, know who SKFU is, those of you who dont, he was the leader of TeamICE(Check PS3 History) and went under the name of StreetSkaterFU, anyhow, recently he has spoken on his blog regarding the PSN hack, here is a quote from some of his research:

    The PSN is down, all accounts got dumped by an anonymous hacker and the community is cryin’ for answers. 77 million accounts with password and sometimes CC info are worth a lot in several hack chans. This is a very huge case.

    Now SONY engaged an external security company to discover the holes in SONY’s system and find answers. As I was wondering if there may be some information about the actual case we can find out publically, I researched a bit myself.

    One interesting point I found is a not secured access log of a PSN environment(Check Image Below).
    You will quickly notice the IP 214.1.211.251, which sends requests like a vulnerability scanner.
    The IP points to the DoD Network Information Center, based in Ohio USA.

    The first log entry of this IP is [03/Mar/2011:07:10:38 -0800]. As the DoD is knows as beeing easy to hack, the anonymous hacker could have used this as proxy.

    Maybe SONY might want to take a look at this IP, I hope soon we get some news and details about the case…

    Well it looks like the PSN has been “suspended” by sony. As we all know the PSN has been out for a long while due to it being “hacked by an external source”. Sony want to right this wrong and completely remake and rebuild the PSN or Play Station Network from scratch. That’s right Sony are now taking measures and actions to secure their network to the highest level to avoid it getting “hacked” or otherwise.

    To quote:

Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.

    We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.

    It looks like Sony don’t want any more intrusions or outsiders on their network, and it will be gone for a very long due to these updates.

    Robo Hobo, the dev well known for creating/porting Emulators to the PS3, has released a version of DosBox, here is a quote from the Read Me:

    DOSBox-0.74-ps3-r1

    Issues:

    There are still some performance bottlenecks. In testing cycle values above 10000 provided the most issues. Tweaking some values in dosbox-0.74.conf may help to improve performance.
    There are still some usability issues with the on screen keyboard. If a lot of typing is necessary you may consider hooking up a physical one.
    Using the fluidsynth midi synth requires a soundfont is sf2 format. Place the file on the PS3 and edit dosbox-0.74.conf to set the value ‘midiconfig’ to the full path to the file. It’s also necessary to change the ‘mididevice’ option to the value ‘synth’.
    There is currently no PS3 optimized loader. The DOS commands needed to launch the game need to be type every time you start the app. You can reduce the typing by adding common lines to the dosbox config file’s autoexec section.

    Using soft mouse and keyboard:

    When loading the application PS3 game pad one begins in Mouse Mode. In mouse mode the left stick moves the cursor, Cross sends a left click, and Square sends a right click. Pressing L3 will turn on keyboard mode.

    In keyboard mode, the left stick moves the cursor, pressing cross presses the highlighted key. When a key is highlighted and any button is pressed (other than Cross, Square, L3 and R3) that button will be mapped to the key, in mouse mode pressing the button will be the same as pressing the key on the keyboard. Press L3 to return to mouse mode. This is useful, for example, to map the DPad to the keyboards arrow keys.

    In mouse mode, press R3 to enter joystick mode. In this mode the game pad acts as an SDL joystick.

    Sony has finally admitted why PSN has been down for days, and it is what everyone has been assuming. A group or possibly even a single hacker brought down the giant. Down time for PSN was reported to be “1 to 2 full days”, but after this update it is certain that is not the case, here is a quote from the PS Blogs:

    An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.

    Many have thought hackers from within “Anonymous” have been behind this. An official post from Anonymous’s website reports that “For Once We Didn’t Do It”. If thats the case, who is and are they “brave” enough to come forward, here is a quote from them:

    For Once We Didn’t Do It

    Sony’s Playstation Network, its online service for Playstation 3 and its Playstation Portable consoles, suffered from a major outage today; which is on going as of this writting. According to Son’ys blog, the interruption in service may last into the long weekend - for at least another “full day or two”. Sony released a statement through its EU blog, saying that the network outage may be a result of “targeted behaviour by an outside party”, brining in the possibility of cyberattacks. Adding to the confusion is the fact that the message has since been removed.

    While it could be the case that other Anons have acted by themselves AnonOps wa not related to this incident and takes no responsiblity for it. A more likely explination is that Sony is taking advantage of Anonymous’ previous ill-will towards the company to distract users from the fact the outage is accutally an internal problem with the companies servers.

    TL:DR

    Sony is incompetent.
