Those on PlayStation 4 Firmware above 5.05 who are curious about PS4 exploits will be pleased to hear that following his PS4NES v1.01 update developer m0rph3us1987 is scheduled to speak at this month's 35c3 Chaos Communication Congress 2018 hacking event about exploiting PS4 Video Apps in order to run unsigned code regardless of the firmware version installed!

for people who doesn't know him, then you are loosing something in ps3 & ps4 games scene (digital releases). There's a community out there (repack). I'm also a member of that community, i confirm that he's a very trustworthy person in general. But im not suggesting that he's the right person to ask about the exploit.
Oh to add something about the OP, theres no exploit related news announced, its only about the games, but if you're talking about the xploit, for sure its not fake. You can visit psxhax and psx-place and read-back some headlines and you will see that theres a new possible exploit about hdmi, video, etc. But anyway the person mentioned above is not the person behind the exploit, but he's more active on content cracking.
