So there's this DRAM exploit called Rowhammer that relies on a program to flood a row in DRAM with "activates" and cause bit flips to adjacent rows possibly causing elevated privileges. Would this be possible on PS4? It's FreeBSD right?

Wired briefly showed a picture of a PS4 motherboard featured as it's google search icon making me think someone knows something we don't...
