PS3 Finally Hacked

According to Andrew Webster at Ars, it took GeoHot, a known iPhone hacker, five weeks to hack the PS3 gaming console. He may have bypassed the security protections to be able to read all of the system memory, but it sounds like he still has plenty of work to do to completely reverse engineer the system. It is too early to say what exploits this will lead to, if any that are more widely interesting outside of the modding/hacking community.

GeoHot also notes in his blog post on the effort that the console remained unhacked by anyone for just over three years.
