Question Does the Switch have Virtual Console, and is it exploitable?

    While watching Sethbling's latest video on Youtube, he succeeds in doing the credits warp glitch for Super Mario World in the WiiU virtual console. He uses a glitch in the game that lets him program in and execute code. Near the end of the video, at 2:27, he mentions this might mean possible exploits for the WiiU, and maybe even the Switch.

    Does anyone thing this would be feasible in cracking the Switch, if/when it receives the Virtual Console? I doubt that the emulator would have an exploit that'd allow full console access, but I can see it possibly being able to run custom code on the Switch.

    What are everyone's thoughts on this? Is it a pipe dream? Or maybe more?

    It does not yet. When it does, it will likely be exploitable by ACE, depending on accuracy, but this would only allow SNES level code execution.

    Considering this is actually Assembly code, when/if we get Super Mario World VC on the console, we will likely be able to attack the emulator and then the console.

    This is mere speculation though.

    No and no. As interesting as it would be.
