    Hacking and Exploiting Video Game Consoles by both Hardware and Software always had a high demand by many people, not only when we talk about Consoles who had the name "PlayStation" inside. In fact, a lot of Hacks and Exploits can come across aboard when we compare all Releases from a whole year, like in 2018. But as usual, at the end of every year, many Hackers and Developers from all different branches come together to the city of Leipzig, Germany, to present their achievements in front of the wide audience worldwide. So as for this year, the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) welcomes you to join and to participate at the 35th Chaos Communication Congress - or 35C3 in short - which will held from 27th December until 30th December 2018. And because there were always many Hacks and Exploits presented for various Consoles from the "PlayStation-Family" in the past, this Thread will give you a good overview for - as the Title already suggests - Everything you need to know to keep track to the newest "PlayStation-related" Hacks and Exploits. This Thread will also keep updated if you will miss any important presentation for example, so you will be able to watch any Stream or Presentation in repeat. So better keep this Thread here bookmarked in your Favourites. :)

      More Information


    • This "Lecture" will be probably the highlight for all "PlayStation-related" Talks during the Congress since both very known Developers @yifanlu and @DaveeFTW will present you together their latest and newest achievements in Hacking the PlayStation Vita. This Talk will explain how the security inside the PSVita works and how they "finally defeated it." And their goal is also that their Talk will inspire more people like you to work and to tinker with the PSVita. So this talk shouldn't be missed out don't you think?

      • Room: Borg
      • Language: en
      • iCalendar



    • But not only the PSVita will have it's Showcase in front of the audience. One Day before, well-known Developer @m0rph3us1987 will also showcase his achievements in "Exploiting PS4 Video Apps." As already mentioned in a previous post, this Talk will explain you how to run "Unsigned Code" on the PS4 no matter which Firmware you installed on your PS4. Hopefully this Talk will give a "Initial Ignition" to the PS4 and it's Developers to see more Homebrew Apps coming on the PS4.

    • The 35C3-Congress is not only about presenting your newest Achievements in front of a wide audience both in front of the people or via the Livestream. The whole Congress in General is also a nice place to meet up with other Hackers and Developers to discuss your newest Achievements just by talking with each other and drinking some coffee or beer etc. Of course everyone can join them if you will visit the Congress as well. Therefore the Organization behind the Congress gives the Hackers and Developers the opportunity to create their own - as they call it - "Assembly Rooms" where you can meet with several Hackers and Developers talking about specific topics.

      Well-known Developer @AlexAltea will also be there at such a Assembly talking about Emulation and by giving a new sneak-peek from his early-stage PS4 Emulator, called Orbital.

      For more Information about his PS4 Emulator, please click here.
      UPDATE: A Video from this Talk has been released, please click here.

      I didn't watch the presentation due to language barrier, however maybe I can predict that there are possible bugs in codec parsers so somehow it is possible to prepare video container which will crash the app. Similar way like in TIFF exploits ages ago.

      Fingers crossed. ^^

      He tried to get a PS4 with an old firmware and failed.
      So, he accepted the challenge and played with the unhacked fw in 2015.

      He sniffed all the network traffic and tested many apps. The goal is he found video apps that use an old, exploitable version of apple's webkit with *no* ssl. So, at this point he was able to read and write the memory. After dumping the used memory, many tryouts and the use of a freebsd vm, he understood how to modify the memory (vtables) to execute unsigned code. At this point you could take over the machine *if* you've got an working exploit for the running kernel...


      PS: This should work until now. But, easy fixable via updates of the (video-) apps.
