One of the world’s most loved console Sony’s PS3 has been hacked by the famous Wii hacker Youness Alaoui. Sony recently released a firmware update 3.5.6 which was hacked in one day of the release. The patch was pushed to stop the modded or hacked PS3 to stop joining PSN network. .As the latest update has been unpacked and signing keys have been published so that other modders can create a custom firmware which can mimic the PSN network making it thing that the user is having the latest firmware and thus allow access to PSN network.
The most interesting part is that this news spread on the same day when Sony won a case over illegal modding of PS3 by George ‘Geohot’ Hotz he has been given restraining order to take part in any PS3 hacking activities.
