Police Raid PS3 Hacker's Home

If you haven't guessed it by now, Sony is just about fed up with all of the PS3 hacking going on. In addition to issuing a threat warning to hackers and potential hackers, the company has now teamed up with the police to raid the private home of renowned PS3 hacker, Graf_chokolo.

Graf has contributed a number of things to the PS3 hacking community that has helped keep it active in its battle against Sony's frequent firmware updates. The police confiscated all of Graf's equipment and accounts that were related to PS3 hacking.

Unfortunately for Sony, the company probably never anticipated that Graf would strike back. Earlier Graf had promised that if he was pushed by Sony, he would retaliate by releasing all of his PS3 hypervisor knowledge to the world.

Keeping his promise, Graf_chokolo immediately released all of his databases to the world in what has now become known as the Hypervisor Bible, a plethora of information that will help developers around the world reverse engineer the PS3 and hack it some more.

"Guys, i don’t joke, it’s serious." Graf stated. "And to prove it, i kept my word and uploaded all my HV reversing stuff. Upload it everywhere so SONY couldn’t remove it easily. Grab it guys, it contains lots of knowledge about HV and HV procs."

It seems as though Sony has raided and stopped one Sony hacker, but many, many more will be taking his place to continue his work. Now we just have to wait and see how Sony reacts to this one.

    I hope the judge lets the guy walk, he sues Sony for millions, and uses to money to fund his next hacking expedition.
