    I am going to piss on their graves tbh. These people would rather fuck over a whole community for money. What we do is not ethical, but in a sense, what they do isn't either.

    What people are finding security vulnerabilities and turning them into Nintendo so it can get fixed?
    And that's a bad thing? Setting exploits aside for homebrew etc...
    This is a good thing, you want Nintendo to fix these things.
    They aren't snitches, you all need to grow up.

    It may slow down the mod scene but at the expense of a more secure console. Last thing you need it a vulnerability being exploited in a bad way. Then you'd wish it was fixed.

    Nintendos priority is making a and having a safe console that's not vulnerable to exploits, not making sure there are vulnerabilities to mod.

    And this sort of reply is exactly why they did this. Get a payment of up to $10k from Nintendo, or deal with entitled "fans" who bitch at them for not hacking things fast enough.

    People don't understand anything nowadays. If you want to contribute to something to make it even better, then why not do it? It's idiotic to say that you will piss on their graves for them just helping out Nintendo with patching useless shit which wouldn't be even useful for average user.

    When did I bitch at them? I respect every developer/hacker here, unlike some very special people.

    And pissing on their graves doesn't make you a better man either, it's putting yourself down to a lower level, but I digress.

    It says nothing about which system was exploited.
    What's to stop them from waiting a few months and covertly leaking the exploit anyway with no ties to them? Basically all they have given up are their bragging rights...

    Hahaha, we are lucky that people actually release this stuff. If you didnt find it you cant call them a snitch :rofl2: It wasn't yours to begin with. If they wanted to they could just sell everything that they have stock piled up and anything they find for the switch. Im surprised they having since the way the community acts towards devs that like to share exploits.

    2 choice:
    Being paid by Nintendo, or having a temporary moment of "glory".

    If you did it as a hobby and was like "hmm I could make extra spending money on this hobby, wouldn't you though? Anyone that says they wouldn't do it are probably lying or just think its not right it keep things to themselves. They did the work and could sell it if they wanted to :rofl2: I would the the exact same thing.

    We need more people like you in this community tbh :rofl2:

    Not really. Career hackers, aka white hats, are better off releasing findings early for the sake of a higher bounty and building their resume (like I said). Their priority isn't making sure people at home can circumvent security for mundane homebrew.

    Also, to all of you bitching, I'll be sitting back and waiting for you to release an exploit for the "community" since this is such a big deal.

    True, some people just can't seem to realize that the hacking scene is home of a variety of interest. Hackers aren't simply good: produce / share stuff and bad: virus / trojan. Some work for their very own private interest as a hobby. Some are willing to share openly their achievement for free and some others use their talent as a job, hired by Symantec, Nintendo etc.. or simply get paid as freelance.

    Few may work only for money or for the thrill but some others are politically engaged : alter-globalization, whistleblower of the 21 century etc..

    The proper response is to crowd fund your own bounty for a exploit given to the public. Not complain and call them snitches, offer more money.

    They're not really selling. They're giving exploit
    Code:
     and they receive bounty as an reward for finding an exploit. If they would be selling, then it would be called "Nintendo SellMeYourHacks program"
