As promised last month, PlayStation 4 scene developer theflow0 just dropped the PS4 Kernel Exploit (KEX) for Firmware 7.02 and below which was patched by Sony in 7.50 PS4 OFW (Current OFW is 7.51) and can be chained together with a WebKit exploit like the previously released userland PS4 6.XX WebKit Exploit by Fire30_ that works up to 6.72 PS4 Firmware according to theflow0 with Mira support for 6.72 added as well! 😻
:alert: This means although today's PS4 kernel exploit works up to Firmware 7.02 there is currently only a PS4 userland exploit up to 6.72 publicly available!

Scene Dev @Al Azif suggests on Twitter that nobody should update until the full PS4 jailbreak is released, but for those who can't wait it's advisable NOT to update past 6.72 per @DEFAULTDNB on Twitter until a WebKit exploit supporting 7.02 surfaces!
:alert:

He sends thanks out to diwidog, flat_z, SpecterDev and PlayStation for the collaboration and while not all PlayStation scene developers may be on the same page with how it was handled through Sony's PlayStation Bug Bounty Program, to others it's a win-win as theflow0 received a cash bounty of $10k for his report and the PS4 scene reaped the benefit of having it publicly disclosed today for those who haven't updated to enjoy as a full jailbreak arrives! 💞

Those who'd like to show their appreciation and donate to theflow0 can do so the following ways:

To quote from the report via HackerOne.com: Use-After-Free In IPV6_2292PKTOPTIONS leading To Arbitrary Kernel R/W Primitives

Summary


Due to missing locks in option IPV6_2292PKTOPTIONS of setsockopt , it is possible to race and free the struct ip6_pktopts buffer, while it is being handled by ip6_setpktopt. This structure contains pointers (ip6po_pktinfo) that can be hijacked to obtain arbitrary kernel R/W primitives.

As a consequence, it is easy to have kernel code execution. This vulnerability is reachable from WebKit sandbox and is available in the latest FW, that is 7.02.

Attachment

Attached is a Proof-Of-Concept that achieves a Local Privilege Escalation on FreeBSD 9 and FreeBSD 12.
Impact
  • In conjunction with a WebKit exploit, a fully chained remote attack can be achieved.
  • It is possible to steal/manipulate user data.
  • Dump and run backup games.
Code:
/*
* Race condition in ip6_ctloutput where in6p is not locked when calling
* ip6_pcbopts, which allows for a use after free on in6p->in6p_outputopts
*
* Build: gcc -std=c99 -o poc poc.c -lpthread
* Run: ./poc
*
* Discovered by TJ Corley 8/15/2018

oof doesn't this mean it could've been a possible day0 exploit on ps5

Wow just read the bit about why he left. That person made me want to leave twitter. Wild. Also i think this was a shrewd move by sony since this generation will be approaching eol better to encourage a hacker to release and learn his thought process for ps4 so it improves ps5 security.

Amazing.
Dude is talented as hell.
He kept vita alive.
Hopefully bounty allows hackers to get paid and release things after.
Win win to be honest.
My second ps4 is on 5.0.5
