Developer Zecoxao, has found a new vulnerability for the PS3. It’s a hardware vulnerability available on all PS3s(Yes 3k and 4k too :P)
He found out that the serial data line on the PS3s XDR chip is used to initialize the RAM’s test pattern + it has read/write mode and is freely accessable. 😀
Here’s what Zecoxao said about the release:
in all ps3s, there is a serial data line on the console’s XDR chip used to initialize the ram‘s test pattern.
It has read/write mode and it’s freely accessable.
the address is obtained from the xdr interface.
You can see it on service manual.
You can write a payload to memory and on a loaded game (or savegame data) it’ll run the payload and do… stuff.
ps: yes, all ps3s
discuss at will or shit on it, i don’t care…
He also posted some pictures of the chip and where CMD, SCK, SDO and RST can be found.
I’m curious as to what is going to be done with this 😀
Maybe we can get CFW on 3k and 4k but that could take some time and no one knows what Sony will do about it.
