    EXCLUSIVE: International Raid of PS4/WiiU Hackers


    Major crackdown by gaming companies across borders this week!


    Normally, you heard of raids by FBI / ICE or BND after a device like PS Jailbreak or keys get published, but this time groups have been taken down before they can finished their work because of e-fame


    Recently, there been alot of news in the PS4 scene, with leaked releases of 'Bad IRET' by CTurt and updates to KEXEC by fail0verflow, and even news of possible PS4 Jailbreak called USB Whistle and before that movement in the Wii U scene with released of 'keys' by Hykem and loaders like 'loadine', but all that has now come crashing down the hill due to e-fame and hackers trying to outdo other hackers for larger Twitter followers and fame, and bigger limelight, and without knowing it they tipped over their own Titanic running it directly into hands of FBI, ICE, Interpol and BND.

    As we have recently thanks to MeSonySpy and his anon. sources, uncovered a major International Raid that is still on-going that is involving a number of known public hackers like Hykem and many others that had recently been publicly doxxed by ak47 (Stuart)whom was even selling internal private info to highest bidder on underground dark website, and maybe even indirectly to actual police or gaming companies themselves.

    Although some people like Geohot got away in end from their trouble with Sony, most people chasing e-fame and being public about hacks do end up having trouble. Hackers that really contribute to the scene are generally anonymous teams, we are going to following this story as it breaks wide open, posting up more details of court records and search warrants like we have in past when public hackers like SonicISO and SuperDAE got raided over their stolen Xbox One devkits.

    It be interesting if this is true and how likely Hykem will release IOSUor not now

    Thoughts??

    How does an anonymous pastebin and an article from a website that has little repetition as a news source can proof this is the real deal?

    Who has been caught? Yes theft of a devkit is still normal theft. What are you trying to say you know the FBI are after them because? I haven't seen any statements from them or any other police department, are you one of them?? This thread makes no sense...

    They made full replies, but they decided to delete them later on. Often when they want to take back something they said. :unsure:

    He had the typical "Uncle works at Nintendo"-type reply written up, but more proof would still be needed than that and a pastebin. If any of this is true, it'll end up being on news websites everywhere eventually.

    Too bad I am not a moderator so I can see the previous edits. Now I am curious.
