F-SECURE AND THE PLAYSTATION END USER SECURITY
My first question is about F-Secures involvement with SCEA. Is this still an ongoing partnership or was this simply for the PSN hacks of last year?
The reason I ask is there seems to be a new exploit on the PS3. The private keys for the base layer of the hardware 'Lv0' has been dumped and accessed. This means illicit users now have, what is being deemed as the hack to end all hacks on the PS3, full access to the private keys used for encryption at all other levels of the system. This includes the PSN passpharse. Its also given the ability to 'emulate' the PS3 on a PC, as well as connect to the PSN WITHOUT a running PS3, to include even an emulated PS3. And strangely enough, much like SCEA's failure to promptly inform their consumers (on the PSN via the TOS) last year; they have yet to comment on this. This is something that has been PUBLICLY available for over 80+ weeks in methodology and the actual keyset for Lv0 has been PUBLICLY available for over two weeks now. Playstation Consumer Services seems to be FULLY unaware of this exploit as well, at least what they 'seem' to know... But Iv had to work with Nolan Hass to get the now existing privacy settings for the PSN message system for over four years... With much frustration as to why he could not understand the importance of.
Can anyone enlighten us here so we can carry this message to other areas of support for the PS3?
Here are a couple of links to verify that this is available:
