Graf_chokolo, a prominent ps3 hacker, has had his personal home raided by German police.

Graf_chokolo, who has contributed countless things to the PS3 scene, had his private home raided by police this morning. They confiscated all of his "accounts" and anything related to PS3 hacking. Some of you may remember that graf_chokolo promised if he was pushed, that he would release all of his PS3 hypervisor knowledge to the world. He kept good on this promise releasing what is being dubbed as the Hypervisor Bible. "The uploaded files contains his database which is a series of tools for the PS3′s Hypervisor and Hypervisor processes. It will help other devs to reverse engineer the hypervisor of PS3 further."


I don’t know how to say this but graf_chokolo, the man who contributed a lot to the scene has recently been caught off by Sony and the Police. They went to his house to grab all his accounts and stuff, yeah could be anything related to his findings on the PS3 security.

Guys, SONY was today at my home with police and got all my stuff and accounts. So be careful from now on.

He keep his promised though by releasing all his knowledge on the HV reversing. The uploaded files contains his database which is a series of tools for the PS3′s Hypervisor and Hypervisor processes. It will help other devs to reverse engineer the hypervisor of PS3 further.

They will destroy his life as they will finish off Geohot - and they both deserve it.

Hopefully Sony will sue and drain these guys to the point where they have barely enough money to eat and have to beg on the street.

Sony didn't shoot themselves in the foot. The retard "hackers" shot everyone who owns a PS3 in the foot and are laughing in their faces.

As a system, the PS3 is pretty much screwed now, because of the fact that hackers can access everything at this point. As there is no anti-cheat system enabled for online games, there really isn't any point playing on PSN now.

Sorry, but you may be unable to even fathom the whole picture of what is happening. But until you have even a glimpse of it, please stay out of the debate. This is not about just a console, it is about a companies stack in staying in business and hopefully not losing out on what could be some odd almost billion of dollars to be made. But hell, most people here couldn't even imagine what it would be like to have 1 million dollars no less lose it all to some punks who back engy everything.

It's free, how is there no point? Not all people will hack, and when you can make your own games for friends to join, you have nothing to worry about.

For all the guys suggesting Sony should ruing the aforementioned lives should find something better to do (ie, go buy a goat or something) ...

while I do not agree with ruining everyone's experience online, I do believe if I buy something it is MINE and not the companie's .... go figure, I guy a car, change the engine and the company reposes the damn thing because I changed something .... no, it is mine, if a drive it down a clift is my own choosing ...

so, i hope these guys get together and fight ... fight until the world will know their names for 100 years

This. This is why these dumbass "hackers" need to get everything they have coming to them. Lots of people paid LOTS of money for a PS3 and now they're getting screwed over by some retarded "look at me, im entitled to hack PS3 cuz i should be allowed" hackers..

Now people can't really play online without worry. Why should people worry if they're going to be hacked or not? Why should they have the fun of playing online stripped away from them just because some guy wants to cheat to win?

F*** all these whiny bitch hackers.

They are also getting screwed over by sony's awful attempts to lock their platform down. If this kind of thing happened in a bank, people would be having their guts for garters if they where this insecure.

Half of zero is still zero. You can sue me for 10 Million dollars, don't think you will get it though. I honestly do not think these guys are wealthy individuals. All Sony has done is angered the community, the community that now has the tools to bring the PS3 to a grinding halt and pretty much ruin its future.
