Developer @SpecterDev published a write-up on his GitHub repo about the latest PS4 Kernel Exploit on System Firmware 4.55. But as you may already recognized from the Title of this News, he explains at his write-up that this mentioned Kernel Exploit is not only convenient for the PS4 itself - it could be also useful for other console platforms using FreeBSD in general, which sounds very interesting. This great write-up also shows how the PS4's System Firmware is running on FreeBSD in general and how the Developers behind the PS4 (didn't) tried to made this System secured from exploiting it.
Welcome to the kernel portion of the PS4 4.55FW full exploit chain write-up. This bug was found by qwerty, and is fairly unique in the way it's exploited, so I wanted to do a detailed write-up on how it worked. The full source of the exploit can be found here. I've previously covered the webkit exploit implementation for userland access here.
Note: While this bug is primarily interesting for exploitation on the PS4, this bug can also potentially be exploited on other unpatched platforms using FreeBSD if the attacker has read/write permissions on /dev/bpf, or if they want to escalate from root user to kernel code execution. As such, I've published it under the "FreeBSD" folder and not the "PS4" folder.
The Full write-up is available here.

RPCS3 (PS3 Emulator) - January 2019 Progress Report (+ useful Extras and Tools)A new Year, a new Progress Report begins. Kinda late for March, I know and yes it's not the first time I use this excuse for being such late. But the Team behind this wonderful PS3 Emulator RPCS3 thought about that instead of bringing you a monthly updated Progress Report only this time - which still shows some impressive Progress from each Month if you ask me - they decided that it would be a good start for the first Progress Report of 2019 to release some additional Tools together with the January 2019 Progress Report. So while you can enjoy their Progress for January both down below and on their Blog post (also linked down below), the Team behind RPCS3 teased several Tweets about their additional Achievements they did since the beginning of this year. You want an example? Well, maybe you didn't know about but since RPCS3 also supports a Basic Network Functionality, it will allow you not only to emulate some AAA Game Titles. It can be also useful to emulate other Non-Gaming Applications and various Media Applications as well. So there is no problem at all to watch some Videos using the official YouTube-Applications for PS3 via RPCS3, viewing the newest Episode from you favourite Anime Series on Crunchyroll or why not enjoying a full-length Hollywood Blockbuster on Netflix, for instance. How cool is that?Continue reading
