    PS3 Hacker "Graf_Chololo" gets RAIDED!

    Looks like Sony mean business with their first real world move on hackers, Graf_Chokolo has been raided by German police looking for any material he's been working on to further research into custom firmware and private keys.



    In an attempt to propogate this info, Graf has posted everything he has online to thwart Sony's attempt to stamp this out completely.

    Guys, i don’t joke, it’s serious.
    And to prove it, i kept my word and uploaded all my HV reversing stuff.
    Upload it everywhere so SONY couldn’t remove it easily. Grab it guys, it contains lots of knowledge about HV and HV procs.

    IDA database is the documentation, it contains all my knowledge, Linux booting is also there. It contains all the code i used to patch HV 3.41 and boot Linux. So, PS3 devs, grab it and continue my work. It contains just everything i know about HV, storage devices and so on.

    Jesus, really? Did SONY have to use armored and armed tactical police officers? That isn't intimidating, it just makes SONY look like little kids that can pull a few strings. It may be a big deal to them, but it isn't a big deal to public safety; they're moving in like they're about to arrest Lee Harvey Oswald. I highly doubt that hacking the PS3 will allow the hacker to go on a killing rampage...

    Or will it? Touché, Playstation. Touché.

    Somebody should get in contact with the guy and see what's up. If SONY wants to act like a world super power, I say we give them an extra helping of humble pie topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

    There should be a group of people who anonymously gather and go about their merry way doing whatever it is they please without fear of consequence, and said group (when not performing tasks that may or may not be considered illegal in certain parts of the world) would rush to defend this man and aid him (anonymously) against the evil corporate empire of censorship against "free use" that is SONY, much like if there were a group that opposed the current censorship laws in Australia (anonymously). *sigh* If only such a group existed...

    Piracy is illegal in almost every country, and I can understand that. Censorship is just bull***t. Hey what the f**k! Damn censors lol... But I don't think anything should be censored, everything should be as it's meant to be. Things shouldn't be sugar-coated because then it's not real. If you don't want kids/etc. to be in contact with it then just don't let them. People need to learn how to watch their kids if they don't want them exposed to things. And if someone doesn't like something then nobody's making you, gtfo... That's just my 3 cents.

    Honestly, that's what this is. You can't arrest somebody for hacking into a video game/console. I seem to recall a similar case that involved Game Genie in the 80s, and the courts ruled in favor of Game Genie. SONY doesn't have a case against this guy. I don't think they could even prosecute him over revealing company secrets, seeing as it falls under fair use of ownership; once the guys buys the console, every part of it (physical and digital) is his, to do with as he wants, and if he wants to hack into it and give the secrets out to the public, it is within his rights. SONY ain't got sh*t on this guy. So by trying to prosecute him, they're effectively trying to censor the information that he has every right to give. At least under American law, anyway...

    If he's using the knowledge to run pirated software, then he can still only be prosecuted on ownership of the software anyway; even in this case, the fact that he modded his PS3 to be able to run it is still legal.

    EDIT: Just saw "German" in the OP. Granted, the laws may be different there, so maybe they CAN legally arrest him. I dunno anymore.
