Playstation 3 and Malware

Image
I don't know if anybody already talked about this, but yesterday, while i was working on a thing, i saw an interesting thing on the wiki. what i read was absurd. GameOS is allowed to write in the metldr flash region. this is stupid. Anyone with a little of knowledge would never allowed it, since if you damage that region, you will brick permanently the PS3; this thing should be allowed also on 3.56+ Firmwares. I always thought that Sony would be not so stupid, but, seems that i'm wrong. Now, i will not explain how to do that and i hope that no one will ever build a malware to brick your Playstation. 
What i suggest is download Homebrews and ANY other executables from well known website, just to avoid this. 
DISCLAIMER:  DO NOT ASK ME HOW TO DO THAT BECAUSE I WILL NOT SAY IT.

Led Changer

This is a simple led changer.
this will change the led color and if it is on mode on/off/blink and it will keep it on that mode also on the XMB for example now my ps3 has green and yellow together while blinking
Readme:
Written by deroad

this is a simple led changer
it reads two var (A and B) from a file.

the file must be called led.txt and placed in the main folder of a USB
an example:

on Windows:

My USB is j so, i will put this file here:
j:/led.txt

on OSX:

My USB is 8GB so, i will put this file here:
/Volumes/8GB/led.txt

on LINUX:

My USB is 8GB so, i will put this file here:
/media/8GB/led.txt

Mathieulh

So in the end, that moron of Mathieulh was a liar! i was one of the people that start making angry him.

From KaKaRoTo Blog:

I said I will provide proof of the lies that Mathieulh gave us, so here they are : he said it’s in 3.56, that was a lie, he said it’s an AES OMAC, that was a lie, he said it’s an HMAC, that was a lie, he said it’s in appldr, that was a lie, he said it’s in lv1, that was a lie, he said that he can do it, that was a lie, he said that “it takes one hour to figure it out if you have a brain”, that was a lie, he said that he verified it to work on 4.0, that was a lie, he said that he had the algorithm/keys, that was a lie, he said that once we know the algorithm used, we can reproduce it, that was a lie, he kept referring to it as “the hash”, that was wrong. The proof ? It’s an ECDSA signature, it’s not a hash (two very different terms for different things), it was verified by vsh.self, it was not in lv2, or lv1, or appldr, and the private key is unacces…

Syscon Firmware Reader

First initial release of my Syscon Firmware Reader..
this little program will read the content of a PS3 Syscon Firmware Patch

This is a simple preview:
deroad@Linux: sc$ syscon SYS_CON_FIRMWARE_01000004.pkg

[Name FW] SYS_CON_FIRMWARE_01000004.pkg
[Gen  01][Phat]
[Soft ID] 0B8E
[PatchID] 0001000000000004
[FW size] 4096 Bytes
[SC  HDR] 1b2d700f
[CHKSUM?] cce4758b a0966da5 6c6722d3 4c2df73e
          d86187a4 2f1e2712 e45c7bcf d3020b45
[?static] 0000000000100000c00f0000

Syscon:

From what i can see this is the header 0x1b2d700f , the it has a kind of checksum then a static value 0x0000000000100000c00f0000
the rest of the FW is encrypted. it needs reversing



Syscon Firmware Reader V 0.01 http://pastebin.com/DwnK2rQ2
I posted it also on the Http://ps3devwiki.com (Syscon_FW_Reader)
i want to thanks Sandungas for his help to fill the More System Information wiki page, on the Ps3 Dev Wiki

Regarding any new 3.60+ JB or CFW

Ok, i want to explain it once for all. There isn't NOW a 4.11 CFW PS3 or Jailbreak.

STOP LOOKING FOR IT !



Why i'm telling this? because people is stupid and keep looking for it.
If you find someone that post on twitter or ANY youtube video or some unknown website about a 4.11 CFW or ANY 3.60+ CFW they are FAKE!

So who trust? all the devs on the #ps3dev irc channel and KaKaRoTo.

Who is KaKaRoTo? he is a dev, well known on the ps3 scene and he is working on an HOMEBREW ENABLER, not a CFW!!

What is an Homebrew Enabler (also called HEN)? it's a software (i don't know how he will release it) that will enable a way to install homebrews and execute it.

What Homebrews will it execute? it will execute only normal homebrews, like emulators or any app that do not need any syscall. this means NO BACKUP LOADERS and there will be no way to play any pirated game.

Who i am to say this? well i'm not well known but i'm a dev and i only care about homebrews. i'm not interested abou…
