    Fire Sony: remove unauthorized software or PSN access will be terminated

    Call me Captain Obvious, but Sony is really not happy about the PS3 getting hacked. So unhappy that they're suing virtually every hacker that contributed to the security breach. It's too late to stop the hack from spreading now, so the media giant turns its attention to their consumers, urging them to go legit.

    In an official statement, Sony reminds users that using the unauthorized circumvention devices violates the terms of the “System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System” and the “Terms of Services and User Agreement” of the PlayStation Network, Qriocity, and the services they provide.

    As such, Sony once again reiterates that if you want to access the PlayStation Network and avail of its services, you'll have to remove any and all unauthorized files and devices from your system. Otherwise, your access will be terminated immediately.

    If you want to get the official statement in Sony's words, this is what they posted at the PlayStation Blog today:

    Notice: Unauthorized circumvention devices for the PlayStation 3 system have been recently released by hackers. These devices permit the use of unauthorized or pirated software. Use of such devices or software violates the terms of the “System Software License Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System” and the “Terms of Services and User Agreement” for the PlayStation Network/Qriocity and its Community Code of Conduct provisions. Violation of the System Software Licence Agreement for the PlayStation 3 System invalidates the consumer guarantee for that system. In addition, copying or playing pirated software is a violation of International Copyright Laws. Consumers using circumvention devices or running unauthorized or pirated software will have access to the PlayStation Network and access to Qriocity services through PlayStation 3 system terminated permanently.

    To avoid this, consumers must immediately cease use and remove all circumvention devices and delete all unauthorized or pirated software from their PlayStation 3 systems.

    Sony allegedly included a rootkit in the v3.56 firmware update, which will allow them to detect users that have homebrew or pirated software in their PS3. According to Mathieulh, such functions are already present in the updated firmware, but it seems Sony hasn't activated them yet. If this is true, then this official statement could be the final warning before they start peeking into your system.

    I seem to recall Sony had a rootkit fetish before...
    They never learn do they? I find their failure to learn from past mistakes impressive, takes great levels of fail to pull off.
    Dormant software is a tad useless when the user controls the entire device and its connections to the internet, then again anyone who willingly updates to .56 has it coming.

    and they think banning our consoles will stop us? Naw, it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to change the PS3 MAC and ID's rendering the console "unbanned". Especially with this recent SSL certificate exploit, Come on Sony, bring on the big guns..i can't wait you excite me :D

    I believe Nintendo is using a similar strategy with the Wii, and it isn't working all that well.
