• General , 17.11.2011

    Earlier today, we had posted a new article related to: LV2Diag / ObjectiveSuite and other file leaks. The source of this information was named anonymous, but had contacted various PS3 scene sites with the same information about the leak. While the files were legitimate leaks, we were unaware that they were infected with a variant of the trojan: Gen.Variant.Kazy. This trojan was not picked by the various devs firewalls (including my own), and only a handful of AV’s do pick it up as seen here. The Trojan was also poorly made, meaning it didn’t quite work as intended and stopped working after a reboot.

    We were not anticipating to post the news so quickly, but other scene sites jumped the gun and started to post them early and forced us to also post it. When more information came in from our IRC one of our members detected the trojan packaged with the PS2_mech file. We pulled the news post within the hour after learning about this, only to then witness a series of server attacks causing us to go down for several hours this morning/afternoon.

    For those affected:
    PS3Hax member Skyline-leo has posted an excellent analysis of the trojan here.  The virus was basically an “noob job” and the trojan does NOT turn back “on” when you reboot your PC.

    Program /Easy Method:

    Manual Method:

    Regardless there are no excuses and we deeply apologize for any inconvenience. The same mistake won’t happen again in the future and I will do something in the next few days to make up for it.

    Sincerely,

    PS3Hax Team

      So the hack is real but infected with a virus ?
      Also could it mean that leakier did not no of the virus ?
      Maybe it was put there by the creator as a security measure against leaks.

      I think the most interesting thing here is that the leaked files are indeed genuine then... just unfortunately saddled with a trojan. At least they weren't fake files with a trojan.

      The question I have is, can those files be salvaged and reposted? I.e. rip the trojan from them and re-release it.

      The tool sounds like it would be useful if it was released without a trojan.

      Heh, which is why you want to be careful not to rush in and download files just cos they are there. Best to wait until you get some confirmation before downloading etc.

      There's a program called sandboxie, or if your firewall has a sandbox use that, for those who are advanced and want to try to de-filth the files without compromising your pc

      I second that

      I hope that person that created the trojan messes up creating another one and destroying his/her laptop/pc, and poor to the point where they can't buy a new one

      I just woke up and luckily missed all the "gifts". I'm quite astonished that on another site there is no notice to the userbase. Actually people were asking why the news thread was deleted and one user was going to upload the files for other users to have a look at it, unknown to him that it contained a virus. Admin finally said there might be a virus but didnt really emphasize the fact of the`trojan like Pirate has over here.

      Thanks Pirate

      SUGGESTION TO ANYONE TINKERING WITH THIS:

      USE SANDBOXIE WHEN DOING YOUR WORK.

      It prevents your pc from getting the virus while you can toy around with the leak.


      ..that's if it's real of course.

      only thing I really dislike in this post is that you say you were forced to report it because other sites jumped the gun... if its not confirmed, dont report it. but hey its not that big of a deal...

      also we keep saying it was a noob threat... yet it got past everybodys security so to that I say bravo nOOb. well played indeed.

      wait, because some other site was posting it, you were "forced" to post the story?

      nobody held a godam gun up to anyone of you and said post this or die. take responsiblity for your own actions. no other site fuct this one up, y'll trigger happy mods and admins are so full of sensationalism y'll don't look very hard into things and do your research until after the fact.

      much like this scene to begin with is, after the fact.
      like how many ps3 wankinkoko fuct up because he (and others) didn't look into things until after the fact. after it was too late.

      be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me.

      If they did not know that already, then they probably should not be messing with this tool at all in the first place.....

      You do realize that only 2 out of thirty antivirus programs detected this right? That means that even if they did check it, it would probably show nothing wrong with the files (and Pirate did check if you read the post at all). This site is top-notch and Pirate even apologized for posting it.

      I would also have to disagree that Sony is at fault. The files are real, they would never release something like this that could undermine their consoles on purpose.

      Your suggestion is not 100% right..... because 70% crypted file have anti-tools and if detected "vm, sandboxie or another secure space" = error and no run application!

      You did not understand that most AV's don't pick it up, did you? Look at this: http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanre...93a6e3227903ba

      So basically, unless you scanned it with Bitdefender or Fsecure, you are infected as those are the only two of twenty AV's that picked it up.

      Can anyone confirm that you can't exit servicemode on OFW3.73? If that's the case then this is worthless.

      nobody held a godam gun up to anyone of you and said post this or die. take responsiblity for your own actions. no other site fuct this one up, y'll trigger happy mods and admins are so full of sensationalism y'll don't look very hard into things and do your research until after the fact.

      much like this scene to begin with is, after the fact.
      like how many ps3 wankinkoko fuct up because he (and others) didn't look into things until after the fact. after it was too late.

      be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me.
      YES, A THOUSAND TIME YES!!! Thank you gentlemen!

      I have mentioned the same thing a few times before and this shows how posting news without confirming anything can come back and kick you in the nuts very fast. I'm aware that internet is free from any type of censorship and that's all great but that's also the greatest flaw - everybody can "play journalist" when they feel like it.

      Sensationalism isn't everything, my dear gentlemen and I believe you're aware of that. Also, saying "but everybody else posted it" is no excuse. I believe a lot of members (including myself) would prefer to read news that are a few days/weeks old BUT CONFIRMED rather than random copy/paste drama generating crap from all the other sites that are, as Gregory nicely says it "full of retards" because this doesn't make PS3Hax any different.

      When all sites started spreading this leak (which in fact seems to be a valid/important one) Pirate needed to make a choice. Either he would wait and let people complain that the news was spread too late, or he would post it right away trusting the common checks he did so far. People want news to be NEW, not old. And as most people would, Pirate posted it right away. Looking back at it, it is something that shouldn't have been done. But that's based on information that wasn't available yet and at least he apologized for his actions. Don't forget we all make human mistakes.

      As soon as I heard about it I knew people were gonna start all over again about the validation of news. And I bet those people have more then 10 virus scanners and decompile every file they download just to be sure that the file is safe. But sadly Pirate did not. He only scanned the files using his own virus scanner and neglected to do a decompile just to be on the safe side.

      [MENTION=1]Pirate[/MENTION]:
      Shame on you Pirate, you should have known better and at least use 20 scanners.

      [MENTION=83916]The[/MENTION] others who blame Pirate:
      Shame on you blaming Pirate for a 'mistake' most of you would have made yourself. It's always easy to tell someone he does something wrong, but don't think you are perfect yourself.

      I'm sorry, but think of what you are saying before you accuse somebody. Pirate made a small mistake with not so small consequence. But he apologized for his mistake. What more do you want? The older this scene is becoming the less mature it becomes. And now people start to feel out of place in this kindergarden and leave. Leaving behind nothing more then a bunch of kiddo's who worship the big egonot who only came for fame and left wen he needed to harden his words.

      That saddens me.

      Who cares, all I care is that this site is back.
      I simply sh*t bricks when this continued to happen for sooo long, I really worried.
      Either way it's not PSN, people DO care if this site gets attacked.
      You don't need to excuse for nothing, it's not like you caused it...
      Nobody had a single momment bad feelings against this site.

      I may sound like a nolifer but seriously, I can sleep better when I know the site is back and running, obviously and innevitably it's a part of our life so long being here.

      1. PS3hax was down for about nearly 2 days - not a few hours.

      2. You claimed this news as exclusive, yes, those were your words.

      3. Other sites don't force you to do anything. Either you're nothing but a tabloid newspaper equivalent, as you seem to be admitting, or a serious site that reports verified (at least to some degree) news.

      4. A "noob trojan" took you offline for 2 days?

      5. Very much appreciated that you made an explanation on the matter.

      1. The site wasn't down that long. But protection against the attack probably blocked a lot of us trying connect to the server. You could reach it if you used a Proxy.

      2. I'm not commenting on that, didn't read the original post but I'm not sure it was exclusive either.

      3. The news/leak was genuine, just infected with a trojan that was hard to notice. Even the FBI has been infected by a virus in the past, don't be surprised that some viruses become unnoticed.

      4. The trojan was noob since it only worked till you did a reboot.

      Did you even try to read the forum before complaining here?

      The trojan had nothing to do with the site problems.

      Also the site wasn't down for 2 days, i was on it the whole time, you can check that by looking at the time of my post, may others were also on, those that did have a problem, could access the site via proxy, if the site was down, then a proxy would have been of no use.
