Just when you thought the PlayStation Network was safe and secure with the recent firmware updates that barred hackers from accessing the network. A new loophole has been found that allows jailbroken PS3’s to access the developer network through a recently released custom firmware.
Apparently, the custom firmware makes your PS3 into a debug unit. This is said to be what developers that create the games use to test content on the network on private servers.
The hack which grants the user access to developer network called dev-PSN, is then used to access the normal PSN servers by finding the address of public servers. As you can see by the image that was sent in by one of our readers, hackers are already gearing up to get back on the Call of Duty Servers which caused quite a stir in the community with many PSN users complaining of wide-spread cheating across the game.
The hack is said to be available to all games that have a public server address. Hopefully this circumvention method is short-lived.
