Hackers Claim Worm Released Into PSN
Now banning consoles at random.



Destructoid recently reported that PS3 modders have released a worm into the PSN allowing them to unban and ban consoles at will.


Via Destructoid:

“A new hack claims to worm into the PSN and allow people to unban themselves.The hack can also be used to ban another console, although they’d need access to that console’s ID, which would have to be obtained from a refurb warehouse/secondhand seller or willingly given up by an idiot.”


Recently, a poster on 4chan’s video gaming forum claims tohave used a small sample console ID’s to generate a list of “tens ofthousands” of console IDs; claiming to have already banned 79 IDs inan attempt to force Sony to un-ban all consoles that have been affected. 







These claims cannot be validated, but if true, it seems like this is the beginning of all out war between Sony and the modding scene.

  1. >That's pretty cool, even though I don't have a hacked PS3.Though I will be mega pissed if mine gets randomly banned.

  2. >…..or willingly given up by an idiot." This is interesting and worrying.

    >haha nice. Sony pissed off a lot of users with their removal of OtherOS and now its payback time.

  4. HiFi says:

    >Well, that's gonna be inconvenient. For Sony at least.

  5. Araita says:

    >Wow, hacking stuff just gets more impressing these days…

  6. Glovey says:

    >Oh sony, why have you not looked into making your console slightly more secure?

  7. D4 says:

    >… Oh damn…

  8. G says:

    >I loved the 'willingly given up by an idiot' quote… It's so true with hacking that usually it's a failure between the keyboard and chair that is the biggest issue

  9. Linksss says:

    >oh no! I have a ps3!

  10. Bart says:

    >awesome. let em fucking burn

  11. Banacek says:

    >sony just can't get a break lol

  14. Haezer says:

    >Let's wait and see.

  15. Jamie says:

    >Looking forward to seeing how Sony deals with this. I don't have a PS3, so luckily this will not effect me.

  16. mtn says:

    >lol, those hackers put it on a whole new level

  17. Erasmus says:

    >Ah, the hacking drama wages onwards. HBGary was more entertaining, but this is more likely to affect the average person. Or course…this is assuming it's true. Hard to know with 4chan as the source. If it is true though, why would the guy have shared the fact he has it? You would think they could get rid of it easily if they know it's there, thus ending his fun…

  18. Bassislv says:

    >this is crazy, that's sad for Sony

  19. >Lol, if its real then I'm impressed with the hackers and unimpressed with Sony.

  20. >Good for them. I really despise Sony.

  21. MArk says:

    >Wouldn't it be funny if this was the hackers goal all along. To get Sony to ban lots of accounts that weren't involved and then make them lose customers from it. Bill Gates is at it again.

  22. Major.Mack says:

    >everybody lets get banned!

  23. Polybius says:

    >I haven't logged in for a while. I hope this isn't true and even if it is- I'm not banned, because otherwise I'll be mad.

  24. >I doubt it's real. I don't see how someone can ban a console from theirs, pretty sure ban stuff is kept server side at sony
