PS3 Hacker George Hotz Denies He’s Behind the PSN Breach english-german

PS3 rapper hacker George Hotz got sued by Sony. He made an rap video that drew comparisons between getting fucked up the ass and the lawsuit. Hotz reached an agreement with Sony, but there’s speculation that the famed hacker is still bitter, that he’s behind the PSN breach.

„And to anyone who thinks I was involved in any way with this, I’m not crazy, and would prefer to not have the FBI knocking on my door,“ Hotz blogged. „Running homebrew and exploring security on your devices is cool, hacking into someone elses server and stealing databases of user info is not cool.“ Hotz said that doing such makes the hacking community look bad—“even if it is aimed at douches like Sony“.

Hotz, however, doesn’t lay blame on Sony’s engineers for the PSN security breach. „The fault lies with the executives who declared a war on hackers, laughed at the idea of people penetrating the fortress that once was Sony, whined incessantly about piracy, and kept hiring more lawyers when they really needed to hire good security experts,“ wrote Hotz. „Alienating the hacker community is not a good idea.“

In his lengthy post, the young hacker speculated that it was „Sony’s arrogance and misunderstanding of ownership“ that put the company in this position. According to Hotz, Sony thought the PS3 was unhackable and didn’t think it was necessary to waste money on pointless security.

The remainder of Hotz’s post is spent talking about playing homebrew games, defining hacker vs. cracker and offering words to those who carried out the breach.

To the perpetrator, two things. You are clearly talented and will have plenty of money (or a jail sentence and bankruptcy) coming to you in the future. Don’t be a dick and sell people’s information. And I’d love to see a write up on how it all went down…lord knows we’ll never get that from Sony, noobs probably had the password set to ‚4‘ or something. I mean, at least it was randomly generated.

Earlier this month, Hotz said he’d never buy a Sony product again and that he supported the Anonymous-sponsored boycott, turned out to be a bust. by Brian Ashcraft Kotaku


Die üblichen Verdächtigen

Bundesbehörden vermuteten hinter den Angriff auf das Playstation Netzwerk George Hotz der wie sie glauben einen Rachefeldzug gegen Sony gestartet haben soll. George aber widerspricht diesen Angaben und distanziert sich von den Angriffen. George Hotz wiederholte und unterstrich zudem, dass Hacking was er und viele andere praktizieren, nichts mit dem zu tun hat, was gerade bei Sony abgelaufen ist. Er betonte zudem das Sony’s Arroganz über ein „unüberwindbares System“ sie in dieser misslichen Lage gebracht hätte. Er wäre froh wenn das FBI nicht schon wieder an seiner Tür klopfen würde.

Seine genauen Worte will ich nicht unbedingt hier wiederholen, jedoch hat Sony selber Schuld wenn sie den Schlüssel zu ihren Server offen für alle hinlegen. Ich glaube das Sony aus dieser Katastrophe bestimmt etwas lernen wird, besonders viel über Datenschutz. Ist dem nicht so, so können der CCC und Ich ihnen gerne unter die Arme greifen. Man-O-Man wie Lernrisistenz kann man denn sein, jedes billig gemachte Online-Portal hat mehr Sicherheitsfeatures eingebaut als Sony’s schmiede.

Mit einem Rap-Video untermauert zudem Georg Hotz was er von Sony hält:

**MP3 and lyrics in description**

Sony you got some rappers signed, right? Come at me bro

Shouts to Heretic East for the beat, Street Light for the contest, Karmaloop Codes for sponsoring the contest, and SCEA for suing me.

For more info on the suit and me:

Yo it’s geohot
And for those that don’t know
I’m getting sued by Sony

Let’s take this out of the courtroom and into the streets
I’m a beast, at the least, you’ll face me in the northeast
Get my ire up, light my fire
I’ll go harder than Eminem went at Mariah
Call me a liar
Pound me in the ass with no lube, chafing
You’re fucking with the dude who got the keys to your safe and
Those that can’t do bring suits
Cry to your Uncle Sam to settle disputes
Thought you’d tackle this with a little more tact
But then again fudgepackers, I don’t know Jack

I shed a tear everytime I think of Lik Sang
But shit man, they’re a corporation
And I’m a personification of freedom for all
You fill dockets, like thats a concept foreign to y’all
While lawyers muddy water and TROs stall
Out of business is jail for me
And you’re suing me civilly

Exhibit this in the courtroom
Go on, do it, I dare you
