"George Hotz (aka GeoHot) has released what is essentially the security keys to the Playstation 3 and claimed to have opened the doors to the Sony's home console. This follows the news last week where the fail0verflow hacking group called the PS3 security an "Epic Fail" and made public the method to obtain the private key.
The PS3 root key could essentially open up the console to hackers and modders to run unauthorized code for everything from Linux to pirated copies of games. Prior to Sony removing the OtherOS feature, users were able to install a copy of the Linux operation system on to the machine and educational and military institutions created super-computers out of networked PS3s."
Sony must be pretty mad, from what I heard Sony is going to have a really hard time fixing this mess.
Linux support will be back
