They can prevent PSN access if for some reason certain people are no longer able to obtain the passphrase. Sony could also add more security and different authentications protocols. Right now PSN access would be hard to stop because 4.30 is the same as current firmware so the passphrase and everything the PS3 would need to connect is in the firmware.
What kamel is referring to is the ability to decrypt a 4.30 vsh. Once Sony stops this last hack (and yes I think they can stop it, lv0 is not the ultimate solution like 99% of people think) then we will no longer be able to easily get the passphrase and PSN access will be few and far betwenn. Like it has been for the last year.
Now what Sony needs to do is start being like MS and banning people. I hate being like that but I have always been against MFW and PSN due to the cheaters, and potential for a norrmal MFW user to also cheat. Look at what has happened to CoD. Look at what has happened to SOCOM. I bet there is a certain forum full of people (not saying any names but most people know who I am talking about) loading all of their cheats on their MFW PS3s and are ready to cheat. I actually got PMed yesterday and was getting asked about making ps3 user cheat work on 4.30, and would Sony do anything if they were caught using it online. I had to ignore whoever this was so I didnt make him cry and possibly catch criminal charges.
Legit users paid for their console, they have paid for all of their games that they play online, and I dont care what people say, but most of my friend's list doesn't cheat (people like saying OFW has as many cheaters os MFW.) Now sure OFW can cheat, but any good cheats require a modded PS3 in order to install or transfer the cheats. There were people at NGU installing CoD mods then updating. They didnt want the homebrew, they didnt even want warez, they just wanted to get enjoyment out of ruining someone else's experience. So yes, I hope Sony does start banning modded boxes or closes the hole for PSN. The only reason 3.55 is still accessing PSN is because we are still in that 1 week period sony usually leaves open after any new FW update. In the next few days they will start implementing the use of the passphrase and 3.55 will be off PSN again.....well at least until a 4.30 user passes out the passphrase.
We have no business being on PSN with modified boxes. You may see it as "well we had PSN taken from us" but I see it as "You made a choice. You cn't have your cake and eat it too."
