Sony Hunting Down PS3 Hackers Like Animals
Sony is vigilantly defending the PS3 against future hacker and jailbreak attacks. The company is taking even further legal action against developers who have so far managed to steer clear of legal tie-ups. Behind the minds of George Hotz and Fail Overflow there are hundreds of other hackers, firmware developers, and program creators that are now clearly marked by Sony in it's lawsuit. It is rumored that Sony is planning to subpoena various internet sites like xxx-Scene, YouTube, Twitter, PayPal, and Slashdot in order to find the real identities of those that are still releasing and creating programs that undermine the security of the PlayStation 3.
These include names that you may or may not have heard of , depending on which side of the fence you sit. Kmeaw, who developed one of the first working firmwares compatibile for 3.55 has been included in the subpoena. As well as Graf Chokolo who is at the moment working on returning Linux functionalities to the PS3. Numerous others were highlighted, or should I say targeted by Sony in it's further legal actions.
