Playstation Hackers Find Loophole

A few days ago, we reported that Sony was making moves to ban “codebreakers” — hackers, game cheats, whatever — permanently.

Now, word comes from CVG that there is a NEW jailbreak to allow hackers that are permanently banned to “unban” themselves.

Reports of the platform holder banning jailbreak users began appearing on Thursday, after Sony released a warning to anyone taking advantage of hacks.

Hackers were sent a message directly from Sony. It read:

“A circumvention device and/or unauthorized or pirated software currently resides on your PlayStation(R)3 system. Immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from your PlayStation(R)3 system. Failure to do so will result in termination of your access to the PlayStation(R)Network and access to Qriocity(TM) services through your PlayStation(R)3 system.”

However, Destructoid reports that an all-new jailbreak not only claims to allow user to unban themselves, but also to ban (and presumably unban) other PS3s – so long as the perpetrator is in possession of their console ID.

It all sounds dodgy as sin, obviously. But Geohot’s not rapping. Which can only be a Good Thing.
