    Is he telling the truth? He does have an established reputation.

    Talk about being a troll. If you don't have plans to release something to the internet, then don't even mention it. Now he just looks like an attention whore.

    My sources say yes.... [​IMG]

    And I think he would release it if Geohot wins.....otherwise its just too risky for him

    Well he probably said this not to be an attention whore, but to tell others it is possible and so others can try and he won't be sued for giving anything away, right?

    Please, everybody, stop screaming "attention whore" at every single thing an hacker says [​IMG]

    He said that to let other hackers know that an exploit _exists_ and that they just have to search for it.

    Seeing the latest things Sony did to hackers, I can't blame him if he doesn't want to be the one to release it.

    I'm glad to see an exploit, and I'm even happier that he's not releasing it.

    He'll get into some REAL SRS SHIT.

    Just to people like you that don't know any better. The hacking community is not about deliverance, and if you go around expecting that hacks will be given to you you're going to get eaten alive.

    That isn't like this at all. He basically just posted "Hey, an exploit exists, but I'm not releasing it." which not only doesn't help a hacker whom would be willing to release it, it also just seems like a way of boosting his credentials like he did something when he may as well have done nothing at all.

    Then again, I don't know this guy's reputation, so maybe he really did do it. Either way, it means absolutely nothing to everyone.

    you're wrong what he did was let everyone else know it's possible now someone else who doesn't mind getting in trouble with sony knows it's there can find and release it.

    It means nothing to you because you're not a hacker.

    You're just mad he's not releasing it.

    You should stop thinking that way.

    there are most likely private exploits
    for most for the system out now

    as for the ps3 exploit
    he know sony is going after ANYONE that is posting Major hacks and keys for the ps3
    that is why he is NOT posting his exploit

    Why not release it as Anonymous instead of tweeting about it?

    Thinking you know how hackers think and work when you haven't a clue is the minor point, but the main point is being mad when somebody doesn't release a hack, as if they owe you. This is gotten off the guy's twitter, I'm pretty sure you'd get upset if people started being angry at YOU for something you posted.

    [*](Well-Known Hacker): There's an exploit.
    (People): Cool, there's an exploit!

    [*](Anonymous): There's an exploit.
    (People): Whatever, fucking liar poser newbie faker.
    It's like you all don't even realize how you act sometimes... this is the shit many people on this very forum do.
