Many speculated that Geohot was beind the PSN identity theft but George Hotz aka Geohot has dismissed all rumors regarding him being involved in the PSN hacking saga. To put it another way he says ” And to anyone who thinks I was involved in any way with this, I’m not crazy”
Geohot writes in his blog:
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. Running homebrew and exploring security on your devices is cool, hacking into someone elses server and stealing databases of user info is not cool. You make the hacking community look bad, even if it is aimed at douches like Sony.
In the blog post he also mentions that it is Sony’s fault for letting this happen by taking on the hacking community and saying that Sony should have hired security experts rather then lawyers.
…and kept hiring more lawyers when they really needed to hire good security experts… Since everyone knows the PS3 is unhackable, why waste money adding pointless security between the client and the server?
In the blog post he also talks about that the companies can’t control their products after selling it to the consumer and compares Sony’s PlayStation Network disaster to other companies who face similar issue when their products are sold, like jailbreaking iPhones.
Sony needs to accept that they no longer own and control the PS3 when they sell it to you. Notice it’s only PSN that gave away all your personal data, not Xbox Live when the 360 was hacked, not iTunes when the iPhone was jailbroken, and not GMail when Android was rooted. Because other companies aren’t crazy.
