PS4 v4.50 Development Poll Results, following their ROP Tool and PS4 Kexec Syscall Implementation today PlayStation 4 developer 5lipper of Chaitin Tech was added to Zer0Con's schedule as a speaker on PS4 hacking!
Zer0Con is a a conference for exploit developers and bug hunters that is being held April 13-14th in Seoul, Korea with registration now open through March 20th, 2017.
About Zer0Con: Zer0Con is POC’s NEW ‘CLOSED’ international security conference. It focuses on finding, analyzing, and exploiting vulnerabilities. Zer0Con aims to have high-level technical presentations but avoids the commercial ones. Zer0Con doesn’t pursue money, same as POC conference.
From the Speaker Section, to quote: PS4 Hacking
Game console is always an interesting target for hackers. Sony PlayStation 4, the most popular video game console, has sold more than 53 million units all over the world.
The last public PS4 jailbreak was targeting to version 1.76, which has been released more than two years.
However, Sony didn’t stop hardening the PS4 system. As more mitigation is introduced, PS4 jailbreaking is much more challenging.
In GeekPWN 2016, I have demonstrated booting a Linux system on latest PS4 console by exploiting multiple vulnerabilities through webkit to kernel.
In this talk, I'd like to share some technique details about PS4 hacking.
Thanks to @aimaim, @mcmrc1, @sealab, @Shodan and @VultraAID for the heads-up in the PSXHAX Shoutbox!
