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.

Has anyone else noticed that hackers are always a bit egotistical?
They sound like they think they've won, like they're invincible.
I'm not stupid enough to think that's true. The hackers are smart, but their job is a lot easier than Sony's. And Sony's not done yet. They're a huge company, and they have resources.
Hopefully Sony can tag some of these guys in the process... I'd love to see some jail time here.
Well, tech will never be perfect, so what are ya gonna do.
So, when does Playstation 4 release?
I can't believe this. I don't get what's so fun with messing with the system.
Ok we know you can do it so quit being an A$$ now.
Pity how some fig hackers have to *** things up for everyone.
I have nothing to say other than: Sony, you fail.
OH. MY. GOSH. SONY IF I GET BANNED I'M GONNA TURN AROUND AND SURE UR ***. I DO NOT WANT TO GET BANNED BY SOME 30 YEAR OLD BABY WHO LIVES IN THEIR PARENTS BASEMENT!
Glad I have an Xbox but I feel sorry for you PS3 owners. I sure as sh*t would be mad if i got banned from Xbox live for no apparent reason. Looks like Sony needs to buck up and make some changes.
Hacking the PS3 is getting old now. How about turning to some other gaming device, like the 3DS. It's not even out yet so if you want a tip of the hat then go on... and SCRAM!!!
Well this sucks.
Unfortunately, that hacker might be right. If the hackers can unban themselves, is there really any way back?
This is still unfair, and it still should not at all be done, but what is Sony going to do? The people they ban from the PS3 can just unban themselves and go back to business.
And all Sony can do to fix it will only hurt the millions of honest customers.
As much as I'm against game pirating (which is somewhere between a little and moderately), and REALLY against cheaters- this is pretty hilarious.
these *** hackers are the nerds you used to bully getting back at you.
This is BS, what do you get out of hacking any systems. All these hackers do is make it difficult for people to play online and not have a fair game. Just respect the system and the quality of entertainment that it brings.
Why does it always seem a few idiots ruin everything for everyone else.
