PlayStation 4 hacked again? Linux shown running on 4.01 firmware

Filed under

Hackers attending the GeekPwn conference in Shanghai have revealed a new exploit for PlayStation 4 running on the 4.01 firmware. In a live demo you can see below, once again the Webkit browser is utilised in order to inject the exploit, which - after a conspicuous cut in the edit - jumps to a command line prompt, after which Linux is booted. NES emulation hilarity courtesy of Super Mario Bros duly follows.

Assuming the hack is authentic - and showcasing it at GeekPwn makes the odds here likely - it's the first time we've seen the PlayStation 4's system software security compromised since previous holes in the older 1.76 firmware came to light, utilised by noted hacker group fail0verflow in the first PS4 Linux demo, shown in January this year.

  • Mad Max Open World Action-Adventure Video Game Released for Linux, SteamOS & Mac

    After teasing us earlier this month, today, October 20, 2016, Feral Interactive had the great pleasure of announcing the release of the Mad Max open world action-adventure video game for the SteamOS, Linux, and Mac platforms.

    Feral Interactive is well known for bringing AAA titles to the Linux and Mac gaming world, and after porting the Tomb Raider 2013 reboot last year to our beloved platforms, which continue to get more fans by the day, now the UK-based video games publisher delights us with the superb Mad Max title developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros.

  • Mad Max Launches For Linux

    Feral Interactive's port of Mad Max to Linux (and macOS) is now officially out and can be found on Steam.

    Feral announced their Mad Max port at the beginning of October while today it's ready to ship. As mentioned in that original article, the Linux system requirements are fairly stiff with only listing NVIDIA hardware under Linux and the minimum being a GTX 660 while the recommendation is at least a GTX 970.

  • Mad Max Appears To Work Fine With RadeonSI Gallium3D

    This morning's release of the Mad Max game for Linux lists only NVIDIA graphics as supported, but it does turn out at least for newer AMD GPUs using the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver things should work -- well, assuming you are using the latest open-source driver code.

  • Mad Max released for Linux, port report and review available

    Mad Max is the latest Linux port from Feral Interactive, probably one of the titles I have been most excited about so hopefully it lives up to the promise.

    It has only been a few weeks since Feral Interactive released Dawn of War II, Chaos Rising and Retribution on Linux, and now we have a real whopper with Mad Max.

    Something Linux lacks is a reasonable amount of high quality open-world story-based games. We started getting a few with Borderlands 2 and Shadow of Mordor, but another top quality game like this is a must for us to keep the interest up.

  • 'Duke Grabowski, Mighty Swashbuckler', a great looking point-and-click adventure is now on Linux

    The game doesn't show up in the newly released list for SteamOS/Linux games on Steam, as it gained a Linux version after the original release. I really do hope Valve fix that one day.

  • SteamOS 2.95 Beta Adds Bluetooth Firmware for Killer 1535 Card, Security Fixes

    Today, October 19, 2016, Valve's engineers working on the SteamOS gaming platform have pushed a new Beta update to the brewmaster_beta channel for the upcoming major release of the Debian-based operating system.

    SteamOS 2.95 Beta arrives three weeks after the release of the SteamOS 2.93 Beta build, but it looks like it's a small maintenance update adding Bluetooth firmware for the Killer Wireless-AC 1535 card, implemented in the firmware-nonfree package, and the latest security patches from upstream.

    As you might know, SteamOS is based on Debian Stable a.k.a. Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 "Jessie," which means that it's always in sync with its software repositories, getting the newest security fixes and software updates. Therefore, SteamOS 2.95 Beta updates the BIND9, NSS, NSPR, and libgd2 packages.

  • Vendetta Online 1.8.393 MMORPG Updates Oculus Rift Version with Gear VR Changes

    It appears that Vendetta Online received a total of eight maintenance updates since our last report back in August 2016, which was about version 1.8.385. The latest stable update is now versioned Vendetta Online 1.8.393, and it introduces an updated Oculus Rift version of the game with updates from Samsung Gear VR.

Home Recording with Ubuntu Studio Part One: Gearing Up

Twenty years ago, the cost of building a studio for the creation of electronic music was pricey, to say the least. The cost of a computer that was suitable for multimedia production could cost the average musician between $1,000 and $2,000. Add in the cost of recording software, additional instruments and equipment, and one could easily spend between $5,000 and $10,000 just to get started. But nowadays, you do not have to break the bank to start making music at home. The price of personal computers has dropped substantially over the past two decades. At the time of this writing, it is possible to get a notebook PC that’s suitable for audio production for around $500. Other pieces of equipment have also dropped in price, making it possible to build a functional recording studio for around $1,000. (Read the rest)
