PSP-3000 Now Hacked

Despite the efforts of Sony to protect their program being hacked, a certain group whom they called themselves as Team Typhoon has announced that they have hacked the PSP 3000 Program.

According to everyjoe Typhoon’s hack takes advantage of a tiff exploit; viewing a carefully crafted image with the PSP-3000’s built-in viewer reboots the portable and makes it load the HEN environment. Here’s the full declaratory message from Typhoon:

This is a demo of the 5.03 firmware running the tiff exploit and booting into a HEN environment on a PSP 2003 (3000 Support also) on 5.03 Official Firmware. This proves that the code survives a reboot and the system software and MAC address can be changed. This is something that only can be done with a kernel exploit. A video launching homebrew will be posted later.

5.03 Tiff Exploit – MaTiAz
Video – Granite
The Community – All your support.

What demo you ask? Here (Typhoon’s currently working on packaging the exploit for the

public, by the way):

Now Sony has to do something to make another version :). What do hackers get from doing it ? Hmm Fame and money ?

    In my opinion hackers are sending a message to companies like Sony saying “We know something that you don’t know!” and it’s the company’s prerogative to either empower these individuals or treat them as threats. I’ve seen some companies here who did empower those individuals and offered them irresistible packages to hire them and most of them took the opportunity.

    @Rob Angeles, Yup , I think you are right.. Having an Irrestible Package will always be the last result of a company thatt are always being hacked. It is like that there will be no Virus Protection if there are no Virus Maker.. A conspiracy ??
