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

Finally, so close. I accidentally updated to 5.55, so I refused to turn it back on for more than 2 years hoping a jailbreak would be out soon (it wasn't.) I hope this is turned into a usable jailbreak soon. Looks promising XD

Anyone know if going up to a higher firmware 6.72 is there any good add-ons or improvements sony added in those updates. I know someone who has a firmware of 6.xx and he has a broken drive and can't even updates to the newest firmware because updates only work with working bd drives

Everyone should donate a couple dollars .. atleast then he is rewarded and hopefully this encourages others out there working on exploits to continue and release them.

It looks like it's time to dust off the ps4 and controller for some more good times :D

Thank you to all involved ... now just going to wait for a ESP8266 image with cache :)
