Cturt, said almost 1 month ago “Just heard from PlayStation that I’ve been awarded a $10k bounty, thanks!”
And 5 days ago “An update: they’re also sending me a PS5 console, which is great because I don’t actually have one yet. Thanks again to the PlayStation security team ”
Many speculated that it could be an exploit for ps4.
Nagataro said “probably an exploit patched on 9.00 ps4. probably kernel. stay on 8.52 if you're there! if you're on 7.55 or below, DO NOT UPDATE!”
On wololo, it is a good article that concludes with
“Now, whether this is indeed a 8.52 exploit or not, it is important for people to stay calm. If confirmed to be a 8.52 vulnerability, there are a lot of things that would need to happen for this to turn into a release, in particular:
The exploit actually needs to be disclosed. Nobody has confirmed or denied whether this would happen at this point
The scene needs a user-level entry point, such as a webkit exploit, to be able to even launch the kernel vulnerability. We do not have that at the moment
All of this needs to be bundled in a user-friendly exploit. For the 7.55 exploit we’ve seen that this could sometimes take months, even when all the pieces are here.
So, take all of this with a huge bucket of salt for now, and stay tuned.”
