Playstation cannot close the security hole with new firmware. It's just not possible. Developers are now worried because their games will be easily pirated. Customers are worried because they'll face waves of cheaters and phishing scams.
You can argue that Geohot's hack hasn't done any damage but that's far from the truth. Sony wouldn't be in such a huff if it didn't. People were hacking using USB thumb-drives before and Sony didn't launch a massive legal suit against any of them. Why then, do you suppose they are now? The answer is quite simple if you actually read what the security hole does and not just take what all the kiddies are saying.
And again, don't try and use the DMCA act in this. It has nothing to do with consoles and solely includes phones.
