Analysis of PS4’s security and the state of hacking


via PS4.

Since there haven’t been any major public announcements regarding PS4 hacking for a long time now, I wanted to explain a bit about how far PS4 hacking has come, and what is preventing further progression.

I will explain some security concepts that generally apply to all modern systems, and the discoveries that I have made from running ROP tests on my PS4.

If you are not particularly familiar with exploitation, you should read my article about exploiting DS games through stack smash vulnerabilities in save files first.

You may download my complete setup here to run these tests yourself; it is currently for firmware 1.76 only.
