A leading PlayStation 3 hacker says that today's firmware 3.60 update re-secures the system from hackers and by extension, should lock out piracy.

Youness Alaoui (hacker alias: KaKaRoToKS) knows what he's talking about. He developed PSFreedom - an open source Jailbreak alternative, and devised the PL3 payload for the USB dongles that attacked the PS3's security system on firmware 3.41 and lower.

According to his swift analysis of the new system update posted on his Twitter feed, Sony has come up with an ingenious method of side-stepping its existing security protocols:

"For now, it looks to me (at first glance) that the PS3 has been re-secured, but it doesn't mean it can't be broken again from scratch," he says, qualifying his findings by adding that he didn't spend more than a couple of minutes looking at the new update.

The PS3's existing security system is based on a "chain of trust" - different layers of the console are protected by individual levels of encryption, one opening up access to the next. This chain of trust was annihilated when Geohot revealed the "mtldr" key, the root decryption cipher that can unlock all of the others.

According to Alaoui's quick analysis, Sony simply doesn't use mtldr any more, opting for a new security system that could possibly require a completely new exploit to be uncovered - something hackers would be unlikely to take on bearing in mind the legal blitzkrieg Sony has unleashed in recent weeks.
"The epic fail was epic," Alaoui says. "It doesn't mean they can't come [up] with an epic save."

what about people who are pirating and don't upgrade to 3.60?and what about the claims about the hacking that Sony can't' fix it ever since the public key was out?

So assuming that 3.60 secures the PS3, if future games require 3.60 to play, can the hackers get around that?

I guess it might be possible for hackers to start taking the BD-ISO rips and remove the update requirement ....

The same thing happened with Dragon age 2 .
It works only with 3.56 and above
And 3.56 cant yet be JB .
But hackers created a crack so it can be played on 3.55
The same thing might happen with 3.60 , still cant say coz meltdr keys r now useless with 3.60

Homefront's been cracked to work on 3.55 too. It's supposed to require atleast 3.56 but a friend of mine has completed the entire game on a 3.55 custom FW, don't know which one... the idiot paid 2000 rupee just for his PS3 to be 'hacked and modified' by some game shop owner in Ritchie Street in Chennai. Can't even hack his own console to pirate stuff :lol:

Point is what's the use if these updates inconvenience us but prove a minor hindrance to the real pirates.

2k for hacking :rofl:

Homefront plays on 3.56 and above not 3.60 and above .
The games which come on 3.60 and above cant be hacked in the same way as 3.56 games are done .
Hackers have to find a new method .

Many well-known hackers like Mathieu , Hermes and Geohot too have stopped working on homebrew,cfws .

No exploit for 3.60 has yet been found and meltdr keys are useless for 3.60 and above
Seems Sony has won .

Rofl no, the service mode dongle was cloned which allowed the hackers in. IBM made a kickass security system.
