PS3 Now “Resecured” After New Firmware Update

The big deal, Sony says, with PS3 firmware v3.60 is the place in the cloud for gamers to back up their game saves, but as with all the recent PS3 firmware updates there’s a security update hidden in there as well aimed at shutting down the GeoHot hack once and for all.

And maybe it worked. Good oleĀ KaKaRoToKS seems to think so anyway: “Wow, in 3.60, Sony removed all the loaders, no more isoldr/lv1ldr/lv2ldr/appldr.. but they added lv0.2! Seems they found a way to secure ps3… For now, it looks to me (at first glance) that the ps3 has been resecured, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be broken again from scratch.”

What this means, generally, is that the thing GeoHot’s hack exploited is no longer there to be exploited, and so that’s that, for now.
