PS4 Pro comes with firmware v3.70
ps4 modrobert writes: "I just got info that the new PS4 Pro comes shipped with firmware v3.70. Perhaps not sensational news, but interesting for two reasons. First off there is no public release of firmware v3.70 via PSN/SEN, secondly, there might be existing exploits out in the wild working on any firmware below v4.00. Thanks goes to Joon on Twitter for the heads up."

Webkit exploit running on PS4 firmwares 2.xx
ps4 [source:] Developer Fire30 released a webkit exploit proof of concept for the PS4, ported from a webkit heap buffer overflow revealed in 2014. I havenít tested this myself, and this is still unconfirmed information at this point. Fire30 says the exploit should run on any PS4 firmware below 2.50, although he mentions parts of the exploit implementation will only work on firmware 2.03, presumably because this is the firmware heís using to write the code. Thereís not much to be said about this at this point, although in theory the kernel exploits BadIRET and dlclose could be ported to this exploit, if confirmed legit: it has been mentioned these kernel exploits are compatible up to firmware 2.xx, and the only thing preventing those from being used on any other firmware than 1.76 so far was because the only publicly available userland exploit has been the 1,76 webkit exploit.

PS4 kexec implementation now on GitHub
ps4 modrobert writes: "Marcan of fail0verflow has released an implementation of the kexec system call for PS4 on GitHub. This was most likely what we could see in action during the lightning talk at 32C3. Quote: 'This repo implements a kexec()-style system call for the PS4 Orbis kernel (FreeBSD derivative). This is designed to boot a Linux kernel directly from FreeBSD. This is not an exploit. It is useless without some mechanism of injecting code into the PS4 OS kernel.' Perfect timing, right after the BadIRET exploit source code was leaked. Thanks goes to GaryOPA for the heads up."

Analysis of PS4 kernel heap overflow

Quote: 'I discovered a PS4 kernel vulnerability in a Sony system call a while ago, which I've recently had time to exploit, with the help of qwertyoruiop. This vulnerability was patched at a similar time to BadIRET, around firmware 2.00, so it won't give access to any later firmwares; but I wanted to exploit and publish a write-up about it anyway, in the hope that the heap primitives used may be helpful for any future PS4 kernel exploits.'

PS4 elf loader and other tools released
ps4 [source:] In parallel to the widely media-covered "Linux on PS4" by Fail0verflow, the PS4 scene is still progressing at a steady pace on the native side of hacks. People running on firmware 1.76 have access to the webkit exploit and can use these tools to tinker with their PS4. Developer hitodama released a binary loader named elfldr. You can think of it as a first step to a Homebrew Loader running within the exploited webkit process. Additionally, hitodama maintains other tools in his ps4dev github directory.

32C3: PS4 Linux by fail0verflow
ps4 modrobert writes: "Marcan of fail0verflow had a lightning talk by proxy at 32C3 showing off Linux booted on the PS4, with some interesting slides, and classic Pokemon running in a GBA emulator. The slides in the video hints that the exploit used will not be released, but my guess is that this is similar to the web exploit under firmware 1.76 researched by CTurt and others (read previous story). Thanks goes to GaryOPA for the heads up."

Hacking the PS4 by CTurt
ps4 modrobert writes: "CTurt has written three really interesting articles (mirror) about his hacking adventures with the PS4. The articles are in-depth and technical about the painstaking process of gaining 'useful' execution on a relatively secure system. Big thanks to CTurt for sharing this (and mentioning EurAsia in the process). I know how hellish it can be to get an exploit running, especially on a sandboxed system like PS4, but had no idea to what extent until reading this, impressive work! I'm learning new stuff while feeling excited like a kid at Christmas."

The PS4 kernel exploit...
ps4 modrobert writes: "I first stumbled across CTurt's tweet about a kernel exploit on the 7th of December, and have since then been waiting for him (or someone) to release the exploit in the PS4-playground project on GitHub. There is still no release of the exploit, but there have been a few unrelated commits in his PS4 SDK repository. If this was an exploit working on the latest PS4 firmware it makes sense to keep it private, but it makes no sense if this is based on the WebKit exploit which requires firmware v1.76. If you know what is going on, feel free to comment."

PS4 serial port research by JaiCraB
ps4 modrobert writes: "JaiCraB has posted info about two UART ports he found on the PS4 motherboard; UART0 and Mediacon (CXD90025G). These are standard 3.3V serial ports with RX, TX, GND wires and baud rate set at 115200 bps (8,N,1). The Mediacon accepts commands and hashes similar to the Syscon on PS3. In order to map out the valid commands JaiCraB coded software to brute force the port which verifies result responses. You can read the whole post here (Google translated from Spanish). Pretty daring approach considering we don't know what any randomly found commands actually do, I suggest having some flash backup before trying this if you care about the target PS4.

PS4 Remote Play Now Works On Android
ps4 [quote: GaryOPA @] One of the last biggest selling features of the PlayStation Vita is the 'Remote Play' being able to play new hits like Bloodborne from your PS4 on your handheld, and Sony been slow in expanding the 'Remote Play' feature allowing it now only on their PSTV (VitaTV) console, and certain costly Xperia smartphone devices. But recently, Twisted89 has made amazing progress on porting the Sony's exclusive Xperia app over to basically almost any other generic Android device, and even tho we reported on this before, the recent v1.2 updates make this port well worth trying out now.

Webkit exploit confirmed to run on PS4
ps4 [source:] Developers nas and proxima have extended the recently released Vita Webkit exploit, and made it compatible with the latest PS4 firmware, firwmare 1.76. Update: Proxima actually clarified that although this is the same webkit exploit, it was developed in parallel to the Vita exploit, and not "based" on it. Their proof of concept code provides several samples, including a module dumper and some tool to create more advanced ROP code.

Let the PS4 hacking begin...
ps4 modrobert writes: "The PS4 is released in North America today. Here are some of my pointers to get you started hacking the latest console from Sony:

* There is a list of used open source software in PS4 released by Sony, this can be interesting when trying to find suitable targets to exploit.

* As you probably know the PS4 features a custom AMD x86-64 CPU (8 cores), and there are loads of research available for this CPU architecture, even if this specific version might deviate slightly from known standards. For example, PFLA (Page Fault Liberation Army) released a proof of concept implementing a complete Turing machine using only page faults and the x86 MMU during the 29C3 congress, check their awesome video over at YouTube. Also interesting if you are trying to run code within a virtual machine and want to execute instructions on the host CPU.

* I noticed that Sony has changed the latest PS4 firmware version number from v01.501.00 to v01.500.000 on their servers, it's still the same release (MD5 checksum match). There is an old firmware version v01.500.000 (aka v01.000.000 in Japan) released on October 29th, 2013. This could just be a mistake by Sony, but also an attempt to cover the fact there is an old firmware release which has security flaws. Check this forum topic for more info on firmware hacking in general, and the PS4 firmware updates wiki page.

Have fun!"
