    This whole raid thing was made up because hykem knows he doesn't have any exploit to show. Any moron can fake a screen shot of "leaked keys" and make it look real. If smea was in charge of iosu, he would have shown us a working GUI/emunand. Unlike hykem

    But those keys are confirmed real by comparing it to hashes posted by another team, way before Hykem.

    There was an "exclusive" news item on Maxconsole about the raid. Of course no mainstream news at all ...

    Well, I think there's two possible scenarios here.

    1) Hykem actually got raided, possibly related to the PS4 devs/BadIRET leaks a few weeks ago judging by https://webcache.googleusercontent....status/705410792179503104+&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk and the source mentioning other PS4 hackers also got raided.
    2) Hykem and a few friends got together and decide to pull a big prank on all of us, getting the community into a big tizzy, before finally releasing the IOSU exploit at the end of all of this. (Well, at least I hope so, pulling this kind of ruse without anything to show for will just get more shit flung his way...more so than usual anyway :P)

    I really hope it's the latter but anything could happen I guess. The source haven't posted the search warrants they've mentioned (http://www.maxconsole.com/maxcon_fo...LUSIVE-International-Raid-of-PS4-WiiU-Hackers) and we don't know who else got hit as well so guess we'll have to wait till we get more info.

    If he was raided for things related to SONY, I would halfway believe it. For Nintendo, I don't believe it for one second, unless he stole things from them.

    Why are people believing a post in a screenshot without the link to the thread where crediar posted the post?

    How do you know the screenshot was real? Truth is, Smea did more in a month than Hykem did in three.

    Nice. Another "Hykem got raided" thread. This could be total bullshit, no proof, just a crediar quote without any PROOF.
    Yeah, I know, crediar is a respectful source, but without any proof, how, and WHY should I believe him?

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

    I think hykem has bigger problems now than to prove some random people on the internet he got raided.
    And with all his electronic stuff taken how is even supposed to do that?
    Rush to store to buy a new PC and scanner?

    They keys can be force-bruted to match with fail0verflow hashes

    EDIT: But you probably don't know what this means, as your key is non-hex;)
