• PS3 Hacks, PSN , 26.04.2011

    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…

      this is due to the lack of respect for people who want what was stolen from them back. then sony wants to raid peoples houses and sue people., threaten 6 months of jail...now you have been embarrassed and now everyone knows you have been hacked. sony your security is a joke, and you wont catch who did this, i highly doubt anyone's personal info is in jeopardy for identify theft, i believe it was more of a , "look what i can do, we aren't just a lil annoyance anymore." if they would of just backed off of graf and geohot this wouldn't of happened. my info was deleted months ago ;o)

      i think that the info stolen wont be used, hopefully. i think it was done so sony can feel the wrath of lawsuits from the customers that they have wronged in so many ways. I Really hope this is a wake up call. i hope sony gets sued to bankruptcy.

      what are the legal actions that anyone with a psn account should do next? im waiting to see sony spin this off as side effects of the ps3 hackers or anonymous . didnt this psn attack not even use a ps3?

      correct me if im wrong, but isn't all of our info stored on their servers? meaning that if we ever put our credit card info in that its still there due to history? i always delete my account information after i use my CC but i highly doubt it gets rid of it completely. although i could be wrong.

      I believe they dont hack the server,they spy the PSN traffic and account, billing information

      IF Sony gets sued thats mean,Sony have right about Geoegomaniac and OtherOS remove and CFW.
      Because with out Geoegomaniac and CFW nobody can use the PS3 to hack PSN.
      So if you sued Sony is like you sued Geoegoist.
      I believe after that case against Geohot open and Sony sued Geoegomaniac for lost money after PSN Crash.
      Sometimes your weapon you use maybe is Boomerang Geoegomaniac.

      i sure hope you are right dizzy74
      also i noticed that whoever was doing this got an error while on linux according to the last line. shouldn't this have alerted sony? i mean shouldn't all of this have alerted sony? especially since psn is under maintenance and there was clearly someone using their servers? maybe im misunderstanding this, but i just want to know how did they not catch this?

      guess you didnt get your fix of online play and your a lil crabby. first off, no i dont want my 100 euros, i want all of my money back, and the fact that it was illegal in the first place to remove a feature advertised and saying it was a "update" which has to have relevant features to consider it an improvement in performance with additional features, not stripping away an advertised feature. the majority of users buy there games, only a small percent pirate games. the wii has been pirated for years and its still selling like crazy, and they are not dwelling in the past they are moving on in the future with new consoles and ideas. and this isnt about piracy, and sony screwed the users not geohot. sony blew up this whole case they made it all public, there threats and actions and acting like they cant be harmed and that they have the super genius security teams is pathetic.. dont insult people when they have the ability to make you look like a fool, sony should learn this lesson.

      Sony was alerted three or four months ago, they were to ignorant to care, they spent their time going after PS3 circumventers, like graf_chokolo, GeoHot and fail0verflow, Sony could have fixed this, Sony should have had this fixed long ago, in fact they shouldn't have been so dumb in the first place.

      It doesn't matter at this point how the data was mined--whether they sniffed traffic or somehow used a man in the middle attack...what matters is that they assumed that the data was secure and there were no provisions in place in case of a security breach of this measure. Unencrypted data just floating around is obviously a sign that Sony really didn't care about the way private data was handled because if it was an oversight--then they failed horribly. That's IT security 101. They completely dropped the ball on this and you can sit here saying it would be wrong to sue Sony over this since we wanted the Ps3 hacked. It doesn't matter. They didn't have enough smart people running around to figure out the severity of a data leak. I would have understood a shutdown of PSN to fix these issues. It's too late once they realize the attack has occurred.

      wow its been that long ago since the whole ordeal happened? Time flies by now a days. I could not agree with you any more on this about how Sony should have fixed this.
      Don't get me wrong I'm no Sony lover, but i wish that they would just listen to their customers a little more. Most of this would not have happened if they actually cared.
      Thats why i like the scene so much, if you ask for something that is a great idea than more than likely a Dev would get on to making that certain homebrew asap. If only Sony would learn these few business tactics. Sony doesn't seem to understand that listening to their consumers just maybe once every month would actually be better on their part.
      I myself have turned to the Wii recently because of this outrage of the security breach, and i gotta tell you that i actually enjoy the wii now. Its sony's mess screw ups on why they will end up losing more and more customers to other consoles, such as the wii or 360.
      No i am not anti sony nor a fanboy. i own a psp 2 ps3s and a wii. all are hacked but one ps3 (for obvious reasons)
      That was my rant.

      I play VideoGames when you Born.
      When you start walk i copy pirate games from Paradox on Amiga.
      And when you learn make the Big O and try to write without mistakes i soldering chips on PS
      I dont need my game dope, i am full i drop in when as kid like Ovelix,and i can play online with my PC just my friends and me we met every night and enjoy play online PS3.
      If you stop think like child,and stop adore Geoegomaniac,because is egomaniac a real Hacker never show his face keep Anonymous.
      Playstation have a history in Piracy.
      PS users and Wii is not the same kind.
      To buy a Wii you must be Nood ,Gay ,Girl, or little kid.
      And i told you again if Geocool dont have hack the OtherOs Sony never removed.
      For removed Other Os send messages to Geoegomaniac and to IBM.
      Is not Sony matter.
      When the OtherOS going to be full hardware access ,by agreement with IBM Sony ust remove OtherOs.
      Is imposible for Sony to hit in market the IBM with a product who buy from IBM.
      If you dont understand we can play SONY and IBM i do the Sony and you the IBM.
      If you want i close your company keep OtherOS avaible and tell me if somebody go to Buy a PowerPC from IBM or clusters.
      Think!!!
      Geohot hit Sony with a boomerang ,and the time at his play with the new phone Win 7 gift from MS the boomerang hit his head
      The PSN shutdown give Cudos to Sony against Geohot

      I do own a Wii too. However never really played too much because my first impression was bad, but now that i actually gave it a chance i really enjoy it. I am not gay, girl nor a noob and am close to being 19. not trying to call you out on anything but did you even play the wii for say a couple of hours straight? not talking about wii sports, talking about the real games that most of us ps3 users play.

      The most people who have Nintendo the truth is they are little kids and Noobs.

      Did you have see the Graphics quality of COD BO in Wii and PS3 Xbox???
      Why i play COD BO on Wii ? is like i play game on PSP
      Is nothing personal and Nintendo have my respect.
      Without Atari Sega Nintendo we dont have the quality consoles we have today.
      But Wii hit on market people who already start on games this is the truth.
      A kid who have play Xbox or PS2 i dont believe go buy a Wii as next Gen console

      personally i like a lot of the homebrew for the wii more than most of the games, but there are some exceptions such as the godfather blackhand edition. You should try that one out if you like mobster type games Dizzy. This is one game that i think almost anyone can enjoy if they like that type of game. (sorry for getting off subject)
      Anyways I still cant believe (or i can) that sony is just going to continue to "rebuild their database" and not care about the issues that their consumers are having with the whole security breach deal. how come when it comes down to sony losing money, they jump on the ball faster than you can say go, but when its their customers they might do something (stressing might) whenever THEY feel like it...

      That i write about who play Wii is what i have see with my eyes.
      I dont see any friend from PS2 or Xbox to buy Wii as next Gen Consoles.
      The most people who buy Wii they find it funny and easy with the Demos at stores with that Sport Games.
      Nobody of them have play a Tomb Raider a MGS Tekken Gran Turismo Cod etc

      yes i have played cod bo on the wii, i personally dont like the series.They always seemed repetitive to me. i'd rather battlefield series any day (just my opinion) but without having the option for battlefield on the wii i did try black ops, it was ok but wasn't something i'd hardcore. but waw and mw1 for the ps3 wasn't something that i'd hardcore either. i'm not a wii fanboy by any means but i use to be negative about the wii just like you, probably worse actually, until i gave other games and homebrew a try. a little on the joking side is that i think we can all say that cod bo is better on the wii at the moment since we dont have psn

      Sony is Japanese and Japanes is Big B****s in bussines.
      Have TV Mobiles Dvds Hi-Fi Pcs and many mores products.
      When a Japanese create a product make deals.
      They make deal with a company to build the server.
      Believe me if happend goes wrong to server ,Sony is the last who pay for this.
      And dont rebuild the data,data is not corupt,rebuild or the PSN system with new communication way between PSN and PS3
      And if you think a Server in your country want minimum 4 days to rebuild and check all works fine ,Imagine how long want to rebuild a global network with 69m users and test it before you open it again.
      Prepare for new OFW and patch for every game
      I am not engineer i am not hacker i just talk with my experience and i dont underestmatade the Japanese.
      Japanese work like ants,even company have a strike continues work with a Red Bandana in head.
      Japanese is crazy M****f***ers and very morale

      The problem is Nintendo is very popular in Usa something not happend in Europe.
      I understand in room exist people who sleep as kids with GB at hand and i respect.
      Nintendo grow up many of kids in USA,but in Europe never be so popular.

      To buy a Wii you must be Nood ,Gay ,Girl, or little kid.
      And i told you again if Geocool dont have hack the OtherOs Sony never removed.
      For removed Other Os send messages to Geoegomaniac and to IBM.
      Is not Sony matter.
      When the OtherOS going to be full hardware access ,by agreement with IBM Sony ust remove OtherOs.
      Is imposible for Sony to hit in market the IBM with a product who buy from IBM.
      If you dont understand we can play SONY and IBM i do the Sony and you the IBM.
      If you want i close your company keep OtherOS avaible and tell me if somebody go to Buy a PowerPC from IBM or clusters.
      Think!!!
      Geohot hit Sony with a boomerang ,and the time at his play with the new phone Win 7 gift from MS the boomerang hit his head
      The PSN shutdown give Cudos to Sony against Geohot

      whats funny is that i actually remember falling asleep with a gameboy in my hands a while back lol. personally i like all of the consoles just because one console always will have a one up on the other. i do not own a 360 though, nothing personal with microsoft, just my brother had a lot of bad experiences with his 360 that it kind of scares me to put money towards them. Then again thats just me. whats sad is when i use to hardcore my psp (before i had the ps3) i use to play more on my gba emulator than the actual isos for psp. i guess its just all what you grow up with that sticks with you.

      The matter is the Addres Billing information, and name holder.
      Without those informations a credit card dont be accept even if you know CC number and Pin.
      Leakers use many trick as phone call to house and Emails to leak billing information from you

      Generalization is to say
      I want my OtherOS back
      Geohot f**k Sony
      Anonymous F**k SOny
      Hope PSN is go down forever etc
      The matter is someone or some actions drive the PSN is down and 69m wait to go on again.
      I respect Geoegomaniac for the knowledge who have on the Hardware.
      But i dont respect the way his act.
      The behaviour of Geo is Narcisistic and this is dangerous.
      I dont want anyone hacker in Jail included and Geohot.
      But that i say is the Geohot glory about PS3 hack is now bumerang after PSN leaks and maybe case open again.
      Maybe a low profile in Geohot life is more good for his life

      I like the ballance i all things
      I see your issue and called SONY is so obvious.
      Yeah i am owner of PS3 and i am still fan of PS3.
      I have tested all consoles.
      And believe me if MS or Nintendo make a better then Playstation console i buy it.
      But now i must play games in quality who dont have build for my Console Power because MS pay the Developers to create the games first on Xbox with low quality graphics thats all.
      You cant convert a Game from Xbox to PS3 and build a online type of game because fan of Xbox ask it, is sad
      That is why COD BO sucks and everybody pray for a MW3 from Infinity Ward and i hope Respwan Entertaiment wint the Battle and take the Ownership Of MW games and create and new one from the scratch.
      If you dont like a Company dont buy products.
      But if you are really smart enough i believe the months they pass you can find why OtherOS removed.
      But you have issue with truth.

      Geohot exploit turns Ps3 to PowerPC with full acces in hardware on OtherOS.
      IBM sell PowerPCs CPUs for a Sony Console.
      When USA Army buy thousand cheaps PS3 to make a powerfull cluster and Geohot converte PS3 to PowerPC destroy the agreement bewtween Sony IBM.
      I like Sony buy I7 from Intel and sale a full system in half price.
      Is impossible DUDE.
      So for one more time Geohot make a open problem between IBM and Sony close faster..........
      The other Solutions was Sony to take back millions Consoles from Market that is impossible.
      When you buy a part from a patner you cant turn it against him.
      Hope i solve your issue with OtherOs and Sony.
      Blame IBM and ,Apple who goes in 2006 with Intel after 2005 annoucment of PS3.
      IBM Apple and Motorola create POWERPC
      Some of them have issues with PS3 as open system and PowerPC.
      If you want sale PS3 as open system PowerPC you must increase his price
      So ???
      You are ready to give PS3 back or pay more to America Law about Monopoly because a price of console is not the same with the price of PowerPC,or to remove other OS?
      OtherOS publish with limitations SONY must not pass trough.
      Geohot do it and it do it Global Post
      And PS3 is the only console who go to market with limitations to not sale at North Korea because of CPU technology
      If you want to have a opinion follow the Global news and you find what happend from 2006 untill now.
      Search for Sony and IBM case,and dont make post with knowledge you have from debates from Fan sites

      I couldn't agree more. That thought crossed my mind earlier as I was explaining it to my friend--a plus subscriber. He's pissed that he's losing money, I told him to call Sony and *****. I think if enough of that happens perhaps a point would be made.

      i hope sony gets sued to bankruptcy.
      Now I caaaaaaan't quite see eye to eye there...while I hope there is some sort of monetary repercussions on their side, I wouldn't hope for bankruptcy just because at the end of the day, their employees are only trying to make money....now I DO hope it sets them back a loooooootttttt just so they feel the effects and affects of their utter ignorance and pompousness.

      I just thought SKFU needs to be careful here. Back in Feburary he reported on Sonys fail of its PSN security, he also today got hold of some "public" logs (which ain't public anymore!). As Sony have proved before it doesn't take much for them to point the boney finger of blame from themselves over to someone else!

      Watch out for yourself SKFU, I would donate to you just incase for lawyer fees BUT unfortunately because of Sony I am sure all my money has been spent of Philapino Ladyboy Internet Brides.. thanks Sony!

      Dizzy,
      I hope you realize that the PS3 uses a CELL broadband processor, PowerPC is manufactured my Motorola, not IBM. The PowerPC processors were mainly used in the old g4/early G5 Apple machines before they switched over to Intel processors. OtherOS was placed in PS3 for tax purposes to lower the cost of the inital fat processors so Sony could get a import tax break by not classifying them as consoles. With the removal of OtherOS they are not considered Computer Systems anymore, yet they still get the break unlike Microsoft or Nintendo due to the classification not being revoked. IBM allowed Sony to add in OtherOS for Military usage as long as they did not use the full potential of the Processor. When the usage of the full processor was obtained by the mention of possible custom firmware by GeoHot, it was immediately removed. This was because if the information was leaked and Custom Firmware prevailed, it would be a breach of contract between Sony and IBM. Sony knew well before CFW that thier system was not secure if someone made CFW. Thus the multitude of FW updates to close the hole. If the system was closed again completely, no need to take down the PSN for a complete overhaul, this could be implemented with newer firmwares as needed. Alas with the lawsuits and things getting out about the GeoHot case and security issues arrise within the case. It was sealed on both parties to keep it from getting out to the media that Sony did not secure the system how it should have with the CC numbers..etc. Along with the OtherOS removal, Sony also needed to notify the users that OtherOS will be removed in future updates, per computer update regulations. They did this with 3.21, giving the user the choice. They did not however state this if you jump over that particular revision. They did however state that features may not function (not stated they will be removed) in future revisions. all they needed to do was post a disclaimer when you click on OtherOS, (disabled in fw 3.21) instead of removing the option. Then turn off the feature without removing from the system. Technically then they would comply with the EULA, and computer regulations since they still classify the PS3 as a computer. Could things have been done differently, sure. Hindsight is 20/20. Could they bring back OtherOS, definitely with newer OFW. Could they sucure it better as well, definitely so. Have one crew work on PSN, have one work on the console. Have another crew work on the interoperatability of them meshing together. This way you have a solid PSN, a solid system, and working knowledge of how to mesh them together with a team that makes em work solid together. (possibly purpose the guy back to OtherOS as well, which maybe a subdivision of the Console team...it would make lots of people happy, users and others too. You could just say...we got it to be secure. ...lame but still a reason to be able to bring it back for tax purposes and justification for both) I know a multi-billion dollar company can come up with this simple solution. Dont sue people, just find out what they did, and make a better product. You catch more flys with honey than vinegar.

      I think all this hacking attention to SONY is fantastic (no sarcasm)! For Over 6 months now SONY have fallen hugely out of my favour and personally I hope these hacking attacks do not stop. I would ultimately like to see third party developers pull out of porting any software to the PSN, PS3, PSP or NGP. SONY have had this coming for ages they should stop passing the buck. All of this is of their own making. They lorded it over other games console makers, Big N and M but when security vulnrabilities are found in their own firmware they cry and whine like little b*****s. I think that all the personal information that has been compromised is totally safe from threat and would bet that it was just a stunt to expose SONY systems as unsecure (surely SONY are guilty by Data Protection Legislation for not securing protected personal data). Any hacker that would use that information for profit should be stoned to death with cow poo. But regardless of that I hope SONY crash and burn. Also hope 3DS pi***s on NGP sales :0).
