The lights are on
According to Destructoid, hackers can now apparently unban themselves. Even more disturbing, those users can even ban other players, provided they have access to the victim's console ID. As one hacker said last month, "The complete console is compromised – there is no way back."
And if you don't know this by now, don't give anyone access to your PS3's console ID. Seriously.

The PS3 is falling to pieces very quickly. I hope Sony finds a way to turn this around. One thing I can say about Microsoft, not necessarily the Xbox, is that their team of programmers is amazing. They release anti-virus software hours after a new strand of virus is released onto the internet. Maybe Sony should ask for help, from someone, anyone. They don't always have to do it by themselves.
wow, why do people have to be such assholes? seriously...
If this keeps up i guess sony will have to make psn pay only just like live in order to improve the security :/
sony... you are so screwed... xD
ROFL...way to go Sony on doing absolutely nothing...Thank GOD I own a 360
I say after these people get thrown in jail for awhile Sony should hire em to fix their problems because they obviously know more about the console then Sony does lol.
Like someone else said with out these ass holes they would never know how to fix a situation like this. It's a horrible horrible lesson to learn from and a hard way to better the machine and the company themselves.
This hasn't happened to Microsoft...you get what you pay for with Sony Online...absolutely nothing...
sony should hire hackers to hack the hackers xD as microsoft does.. almost every worker in the programming sector of microsoft are hackers.
altough i dont play online so this doesnt affect me :P
Who would imagine that the only thing saving me from this was the decision between God of War and Halo.
I still want to play God of War though. =(
I really hate this. Why would you go and ban people anyway for no reason? Also, if you have to get a pirated game instead of buying the retail version, then it showing how you dont care how much work people did to get the game off the ground. Its just really effed up
*sigh* Well, this is disappointing news.
Well, I guess I can go to Playstation Blog Ideas and get Sony to follow through on my Limited-Edition PS3 that looks like a 2011-version of the PS1 idea. I thought it was awesome, then I stopped caring, but now it's starting to sound awesome again. At least they would have a reason to create a new console with better security lmao
Yay! Sony is being such a try hard. This makes me happy. Every console gets hacked Sony, who are you to think you are exempt?
This is bad, I'm all for users taking control of their systems and playing homebrew, but pirating is bad, and being able to unban yourself and others is worse...I can imagine people making a business unbanning people.
