The PlayStation 4 (PS4) firmware of choice for the hacking community has been firmware v1.76, as developer's have taken advantage of that webkit exploit in the firmware and have been able to achieve various things, most notable being able to install Linux on your PS4 with the ability to run apps like the Steam App with graphic acceleration for example However things could change for the PS4 as the recent HENkaku exploit for the PS Vita / PSTV has been ported to the PS4 's 3.55 Firmware by developer Fire30.
So this means a new webkit exploit is now in the wild for the PS4 and provides us code execution in 3.55, The webkit exploit for 3.55 would still need some additional work and exploitation before things would shake out like it is in the current 1.76 firmware on the PS4 with regards to things like Linux Support. However, this HENkaku exploit could bring some intriguing things to 3.55 firmware and being a current firmware will sure be avaiable to much more people then the advancements we seen in v1.76. So, stay tuned to your leader in PlayStation Hacking Coverage the one and only PSX-Place, as this story will is sure to develop and evolve over the next several days / weeks / months..
PS4 3.55 Code Execution
This repo contains a PoC for getting code execution on ps4's with firmware version 3.55 It uses the same webkit vulnerability as the henkaku project. So far there is basic ROP working and returning to normal execution is included. Next steps will be to map a jit page sucessfully and getting actual shellcode executed.
UsageYou need to edit the dns.conf to point to the ip address of your machine, and modify your consoles dns settings to point to it as well.
- python fakedns.py -c dns.conf
Debug output will come from this process.
- python server.py
Navigate to the User's Guide page on the PS4 and information about the exploit and all loaded modules should be printed out. This is an example of what running it will look like: https://gist.github.com/Fire30/2e0ea2d73d3a1f6f95d80aea77b75df8
There are a few notes:
- The exploit is not 100% reliable currently. It is more like 80% which is good enough for our purposes. So if it does not work on first try, try a few more times. Also doing to much allocating after the sort() is called can make it more unstable.
- The process will crash after the rop is done executing.
- xyz - Much of the code is based off of his code used for the henkaku project
- Anonymous contributor - WebKit vulnerability PoC
- CTurt - I basically copied his JuSt-ROP idea

The Feed (A new site feature)We know news has been light on the mainpage itself (last couple weeks), but we are still gathering and keeping everyone informed of the scene releases in "The Feed" a new section created that has replaced the Member News Submission and also our own internal news forums where we would prepare news articles .The biggest reason for this change is to simply bring news faster to all, no need to wait for the full article before being notified / discussing the release, When we see something interesting we will post it directly here and we hope ALL members help us with this as well. Post a simple link or a even full articles if you choose to help the community with a small or big contribution to The Feed .Continue reading
