Sony wins restraining order against Geohot

Some of you may or may not be following this story. What happened is that, with the assistance of another exploit discovered a week or so before his, he was able to crack the decryption keys of the PlayStation 3, which basically allows anyone to run unsigned code on their PlayStation 3 forever, as there is no way to patch this exploit without rendering past PlayStation 3 consoles useless. Anyway, the restraining order basically bars George Hotz from publicly discussing the keys, as well as barring him from doing further exploits on the PS3.

The thing is the keys are all over the Internet and are a simple Google search away.

A source...

Good news, but it's probably useless at this point... unfortunately.

It was only a matter of time until both the PS3 got truly exploited, and before said exploiter was came after by Sony.

This entire legal battle has really irked me. Although Sony has a fair argument when it comes to circumvention of the jailbreak, any claims they've made against Hotz when it comes to piracy are absurd. He specifically disabled PEEK & POKE options to prevent backup managers from working on the console, which users typically use to run pirated games. Other users eventually released patches that enabled said capabilities, but you can't point the finger at geohot for it.

Many users also bash him by saying he's responsible for online cheating, which is also incorrect. Hotz has never connection to the PlayStation Network, nor has he encouraged or provided the means to cheat online. Both Sony and many of their consumers fail to understand this, so they simply pick geohot to blame, even though they really have no reason to. I found that the official statement released by Sony today really reflected their user base's ignorance on the entire situation, but that's just my opinion, of course.

If Sony didn't remove OtherOS support and turn the PlayStation 3 into a closed, controlled system, I don't think there'd be this many issues stemming from what George published. Both Apple and Nintendo have shown they can deal with jailbreaking and/or homebrew without suing anyone, so why can't Sony do the same? This entire story is just a shame to see.

I would like to mention that it is a TRO (Temp. Restraining Order) and it is not deserved. George Hotz warned Sony of flaws, but Sony didn't do anything but remove Other OS, which made a ton of people mad causing tons of hackers to start working on hacking the PS3. So Sony really screwed themselves.

With that said, I admire Geohot's bravery.

The battle against Sony is not over yet, in fact, I think this might have just added fuel to the flames.

Circumvention of their private keys and the jailbreak itself is what Sony has an issue with, so their claim is valid. However, the removal of OtherOS is what inspired this wave of hackers successfully cracking the PlayStation 3.

That rap was hilarious. I doubt it'll really help anything swing in Sony's favor, especially since their TRO is a joke to begin with.

Yeah, they removed Other OS from the system because of a vulnerability in it... Instead of just working to patch it. Geohot was recording his findings with Other OS, and even told Sony about the vulnerability. Obviously they didn't consider it a threat until they found out he was serious. Even though his exploit required a ton of soldering and wouldn't be useful to most people.

And also, Sony should go attack the pirates, not the hacker.He didn't make the piracy software.
