    Hello.
    I want to make clear, that I am not accusing any developer of henkaku, since I probably installed some game with malicious code hidden in it.

    I think it is necessary to inform the community about a hacking attempt a few hours ago on the PSN account created exclusively for use in my psvita with henkaku.

    This PSN account has an email associated with it only. They had the same password (different of course from my actual accounts). This account was never used on another playstation device.

    Google informed me of a suspicious income to the email account which was blocked, with the correct password. Same PSN account password.

    Of course the passwords were changed by me although the accounts have no value.

    So, as psn spoofing can no longer be used, I recommend changing the passwords of the PSN accounts they use in your psvita with henkaku. You can never be too careful.


    The list of games installed in my vita is (are very few):
    - Dragon quest builders
    - Duke nukem 3d megaton edition
    - Ultimate marvel vs capcom 3
    - Tetris Ultimate

    Greetings, I hope no one takes this message wrong.

    You also might want to let people know about this on the wololo forums and all the vita reddit sections.

    That's why you shouldn't go around downloading games from random websites to begin with...

    This is very concerning.
