Sony Takes Geohot and fail0verflow to Court for Releasing PS3 Hack

12 January 2011 By Shashank

Sony's legal action

We were wondering what Sony’s reaction will be to the PS3 hacking scene, well just hours ago Sony has served legal papers to Geohot, fail0verflow, 27C3 hacking conference lecturers and 100 others. SCEA have also demanded a motion to be carried out for TRO(Temporary Retraining Order) which if passed, will have jailbreaks and other PlayStation 3 hacking stuff removed from the web.
