Fail0verflow

Well as you all probably no if it was not for Fail0verflow then the 3.55 CFW would not have been possible.

The big PS3 Exploit that was officially announced at the annual 27C3 conference. All the big names in the developer scene world (segher, marcan, sven and bushing) where present at the conference.

There was a video for 40 mins describing Sony's "EPIC FAIL" as they called it, which to this day will be one of the biggest events that ever happened to the PS3, from this Sony had hit back at the developers and hard. From taking people to court and suing them, to getting the police to confiscate there equipment and destroy whatever they where working on.

Back to the topic on hand.

Here is the video from the 27C3 conference a day that will continue to inspire people.



The first few minutes of the conference were spent explaining the state of security on other consoles (Wii, 360, etc). Following this, the group went on to explain the current state of affairs on the PS3. First, explaining Geohot's memory line glitching exploit from earlier this year. The team then went on to explain the current PS3 security bypasses, such as jailbreaking and service mode/downgrading.

Approximately a half hour in, the team revealed their new PS3 secrets, the moment we all were waiting for. One of the major highlights here was, dongle-less jailbreaking by overwriting the bootup NOR flash, giving complete control over the system. The other major feat, was calculating the public private keys (due to botched security), giving users the ability to sign their own SELFs Following this, the team declared Sony's security to be EPIC FAIL!

The recent advent of these new exploits means current firmware is vulnerable, v3.55 and possibly beyond. It will be very difficult for Sony to fix the described exploits.

The team then displayed the website http://fail0verflow.com/, where we assume they will host examples of the new exploits and further details. They stated, that easy to use tools would be coming next month.
