Just stick to scene releases, end of the issue.
very well put my dude ! i am a proud gamer XD and yes just like you said, hot damn i dont know how many controllers me and my bros smashed by tossing them out of frustration whoever thats lost. (Games like Tekken/Football 'PES' etc.)
sad to see this virus thing, i hope there wont be any more of these virus codes in any dumps :l
and btw. guys, there is this vitaorganizer program, on some of the dumps i downloaded a month ago ,it says unsafe, are these not to be trusted?
the ones i have are mostly Vitamin 1.x/2.x < can Vitamin dumps also be risky ? considering the ones that had the virus code in them were mai dumps?
Just low life scum bags that do that kinda stuff. Karma will catch up with them.
this "OS0:KD and VS0" < can be attacked with any kind of dump i assume .. ? not only with Mai i guess.
and hot damn ,it is said to be 'devastating payload for something so simple.'
we need Henkaku to block this kind of virus, hmmmm someone did mention something like 'Avita Antivirus' maybe something like that would be good too Dx
edit: okay ,checkin in reddit , there is a vita brick tester exe , i guess you only have to drop your vpks in there to test them for malicious codes.
(but someone tried it with the fruit ninja bricker yet it said everything seems ok for him) hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....
What if it was Sony themselves who did this?
I can imagine Sony laughing about this, but then again also not, after all they gave up of vita anyway, why should they care?

yep this ^ i doubt Sony would be doing this, it were just some low life mofos.
btw. could someone tell us how to check for the specific malicious codes within HxD ? i would check every frikkin dump i have downloaded (i have about 30 dumps)
This is bad. How do we know the dumps are good?
Yes you can. Oh no, someone pirated, they deserve to have no chance of buying a game because some fuckwit made a bricking VPK? Nice twisted views you have there.
MAKE THIS A FEATURED POST
Anything is possible, yet I doubt it.
Yifan has said quite a few times that this kind of thing *is* blocked, at the installation stage, if you install things via vitashell (as it ties into henkaku's 'safe homebrew' feature).
You will receive the 'application requests extended permissions' message. You then have the option to stop, or accept the risk if for some reason the homebrew does need the higher level of access (game dumps dont) and you want to proceed.
If the vpk installs without giving this message, it does not have access to cause the harm these bricking releases did.
Molecule have granted homebrew a hell of a lot of access, and provided the safe homebrew feature as a means of mitigating (possibly eliminating) the risk when that access isn't required.
The bricking releases were mai dumps and mai tool did not perform the same check previously. The changelog for version 2z9 mentions they now do perform a check (hopefully the same as vitashell, but I'm unsure).
yep thanks, but hey i split my vpks with vpktool and then i transfer the gameidftp< its the game folder content is in, and the vpk thats been split becomes a small file in size, i usually then just push them in the PsVita/Savedata folder and i transfer it this way with QCMA, works fastest for me to transfer, and if i install ths shrinked vpk will i still get the message in case it is a unsafe vpk ? considering i have the vpk content split?
A troll can trigger the brick code at a exact moment? For example, after killing the final boss or if you lose?
I know nothing about coding , hex editing etc. But I downloaded Ratchet & Clank 1,2 & 3 and I noticed if I extract the contents they were all previously Mai dumps. Now I'm too scared to install them.
I see that the eboot.bin is set to "02 00 00 00 00 00 00 2F" at offset "0x80" for all 3 games, now what I want to know is, does that make the game 100% safe.
If for example a virus infected game has the eboot set at "01 00 00 00 00 00 00 2F" at offset "0x80" and I change the "01" to "02" in a hex editor and then save, will that then make the game safe or will that just break the eboot ?
That's pretty much what vitaorganizer does (as well as deleting duplicate files). It's a lot easier than unpacking/hex'ing/packing every vpk yourself.
I said "use at your own risk", I never said anyone DESERVED it, nice try twisting my words kiddo...
"Well, let's say you can't cry foul when you been playing dirty yourself..."
Implies you deserve it..
A complete description as to how they did what they did:
The link is a 3 page Description. So have no fear my dear MODS!!
You wont find any Warez here XD
This is why we can't have nice things
Some people want to see the world burn.
This news is really sad. I've seen a lot of victims in reddit because of this release.
