Up until now users that have hacked their PS3 video game console have been able to do it through several methods and have been successful at doing so. Today, at around 6:00 pm Sony has given another blow to the hacker community by blocking access to the Playstation network through DNS or Proxy hacks.
About 6 hours ago, the main IP address that was being used as a proxy server to get access to the Playstation Network while still using firmware version 3.55 was working, however, the hacking community right now can confirm that the DNS does not work any more, and that another well known hack using Proxy on the connection settings has been disabled as well.
This is all part of Sony’s campaign to discourage users of the PS3 from hacking the system. So far in the last couple of weeks Sony has been very proactive on stopping any resources on the internet that provide users with information or software that allows any type of hacking to their system. Also Sony has been working on the legal front by getting any developer that might have been involved in breaking the PS3’s security into legal trouble.
Be it as it may, like it or not, Sony has so far been very successful at controlling the consequences of the PS3 being hacked. There is no doubt in my mind that we will soon enough hear from the hacking community either through angry forum posts all over the internet, or through a new developed method to connect hacked systems to the Playstation Network.
