[BBC]Sony scores against PlayStation 3 hacker

Sony has won a restraining order that stops a hacker spreading word about ways to play pirated games on the PS3.

The injunction means George Hotz can no longer put information on the web about the hack and must hand over his computers to Sony.

He has 10 days to comply with the Californian court order to hand over his computer equipment.

Source? And a restraining order doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. It's just to put him off for the moment while Sony gathers their legal counsel. Happily, it gives him the chance to do the same.

Write 0's to it lol. I think without doing this they can still recover the data.

I lol'd, just back stuff up to a usb drive and lend it to a friend for the time being. The only thing i'd be upset about it losing my parts LOL.

This.

Also, 10 days to hand over his computer equipment? Does that include monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc? Wouldn't the hard drive(s) be enough? Sony probably wants all of it so they could take a deuce on it then high five each other.

This doesnt do anything, you can still get data back from formats. All this does is write zeros over the data to make the OS think there is no data there
