“Another one bites the dust.”
Fail0verflow, a group of hackers, claims to have made great progress in breaking into the security of PlayStation 5.
As reported, they managed to gain access to the PS5 root keys used to decrypt parts of the PS5 firmware, something that made them more likely to break the security imposed by Sony on their latest consoles. will allow to obtain the probability.
The group hasn’t shared how it achieved this and doesn’t think it will do so publicly, especially as it’s a big issue for Sony which will certainly do everything it can to make sure that information has not been disclosed more widely.
Fail0verflow claims to defeat another security system and claims that the PS5’s root keys are software-obtainable, which positions itself to accomplish what’s already done on the PS3 and PS4: Leaves the PS5’s security to its knees.
Translation: we’ve got all the (symmetric) ps5 root keys. They can all be obtained from software – including per-console root keys, if you try hard enough! https://t.co/ulbq4LOWW0
