    Year after year, many Hackers and Developers around the Globe come together for a "Meet&Greet" at the City of Leipzig, Germany, where they share and discuss their newest Achievements with Hacking and other Security Subjects leading the way. Since you are a trustfully reader of this Site, you shouldn't be suprised anymore that like for last year, we decided to give you the full coverage about this years Chaos Communication Congress again - stylized as "36C3 - RESOURCE EXHAUSTION" by it's host. Last years Congress (35C3) was already an impressive one, which showed us many new Achievements, especially for both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. Indeed, speaking about the PSVita, the stages at 35C3 led to various new Exploits and Homebrew Releases afterwards, which you are already familiar about and probably downloaded a thousand times. This years Congress will also show us the newest Achievements in the Console Scene and since your own demand was already so high for the last year, we had a reason more to keep you informed for the full coverage of this years 36C3. So, the only thing you need to do like you did last year is to keep this Article bookmarked, since we keep this Article updated after each new presentation. So you won't miss anything!​

    Logo of this years Chaos Communication Congress with their slogan: "Resource Exhaustion"

    • The 36th Chaos Communication Congress (36C3) is the 2019 edition of the annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia organised by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) and volunteers.

      The Congress offers lectures and workshops and various events on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society.

      Like for last year, the Congress takes place at

      More Information


    • Following his announcement about a month ago, Developer @oct0xor will show us his newest and latest Achievements in "Hacking Sony PlayStation Blu-ray Drives" with the Goal to get Code Execution on both the Blu-ray Drives of both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4. This sounds very interesting since there wasn't always such a high demand for the Blu-ray Drives in the past for both the PS3 and the PS4, so this Talk should be a guarantee that we will definitely learn something new, which will be maybe useful for someone.

    • But not only the PlayStation is represented at the stages of 36C3. If you are also interested in Handheld Consoles, especially made from Nintendo, then you will be familiar with known Developer @nba::yoh, who already showed his Experiences in tinkering with the Nintendo 3DS. He will be also presenting his own Talk at 36C3: "It's not safe on the streets... especially for your 3DS!" - by presenting his Achievements in Reverse Engineering an "Undocumented Communication Protocol" to get Code Execution for possible Exploits. Even when the 3DS isn't supported by Nintendo anymore, this Talk will be very interesting if you still own one!

    • Other than speaking about Console Talks only, you will get the chance to see two very known Developers on the stages, who worked on several PlayStation Consoles among other things in the past, namely @naehrwert - who was already on the stage at both 33C3 and 34C3 in the past tinkering with various Nintendo Consoles - and @quertyoruiop - which he will held his very first Talk on the big stages of CCC. Although their Talks won't be Console Related in General, it is still nice to see how this whole Congress can give the Developers a platform to introduce their skills in Hacking and Security. And I think they would appreciate it if you turn on their Talks as well.

    • And if you get the chance to visit 36C3 by travelling to Leipzig, you will get the opportunity to get "in touch" with the Developers on-site. Like last year, the Congress will give Developers without a specific Talk to create those mentioned "Assembly Rooms", where the Developers will be able to discuss their own Achievements on a smaller Stage, either with other Developers or even with you. Those Developers can teach you in older Hacks and Exploits, they can show you what happens at a Developer "Behind the Scenes" or you can just come over and send an warmful "Hi" to them (don't worry they won't bite you ^^). And especially, if you are a Developer by your own, you are welcome to show them your own tricks and tips. :)

      Your welcome. Luckily it's more chillin' this year, unlike last year where I needed to translate a whole talk. That was stressful. :)
