Recently, a utility has been published designed to bypass the protection of Sony PlayStation 4 with the firmware version 4.05. This is a known exploit namedobj, the information about which first appeared on the network in the autumn of this year. Its author – a user under the name of Specter – assures that the program allows you to run on the console of any code and at the kernel level make changes to the system. Potentially with its help, you can jailbreak and bypass anti-piracy protection.
Owners of PS4 with the current software 5.03 will not be able to use namedobj. The published exploit works with the software version 4.05, because it actively exploits the vulnerability that was present only in it. Already in patch 4.06 Sony “patched” this hole, so with all subsequent versions of the utility is incompatible.
