Hackers manage to hack the PS4 into running unauthorized games

Until the most critical moment for the PlayStation from Sony. Three hackers managed to hack the console PS4 and PS4 Pro through an exploit that will allow unauthorized applications and copies of video games to be run.

The jailbreak, dubbed “pOOBs4″ Was designed by developers SpecterDev, ChendoChap, and Znullptr, even though the vulnerability was discovered by Sleirgoevy.

Running the jailbreak requires that the PS4 have access to the Internet, as well as a USB stick connected where a special file is loaded. Once open, you can install tools to modify the console, such as Look Project or GoldHEN homebrew enabler.

The concern for Sony is that according to Znullptr, the kernel exploit that this jailbreak uses on the PS4 should work for the PS4 as well. PS5. This is still a guess, because the hacker does not have a PS5 to test the jailbreak.

It was SpecterDev who finally shared the jailbreak “pOOBs4″ With links to their official GitHub. It may be a matter of hours or days to see if it also works for the next generation PlayStation consoles.

While the execution of personal codes in the PS4 has been done before, the novelty with “pOOBs4″ Is that it works with Sony firmware version 9.00, released on September 15th. Previous times required much older versions.
