Two popular gaming forums 'XBOX360 ISO' and 'PSP ISO' were hacked back in 2015, and all account passwords, email addresses and IP addresses were all just recently exposed and of course forum users are advised to change all of their accounts' passwords asap!
These two hacks occurred almost a month ago, but now the 'databases' have been made public and added online to various 'pwned' sites, and other forum sites like here on MaxConsole and GBATemp have seen a major rise in illegal login attempts of using the now decrypted leaked passwords on similar gamer nick logins, so remember if you have a BAD HABIT of using 'same passwords' on multiple sites, PLEASE STOP DOING THAT and CHANGE THEM right away!
IDC has released simple tools on GITHub to rip apart those nice PUP update files released by Sony for your PS4 console!

Finally, we can start to look deeper into how the PlayStation 4 console upgrades its firmware, with this handy new tools by IDC!
Have you ever wanted to see what is inside the PUP update file for the PlayStation 4 console, well now you can thanks to this new tools recently released on GITHub by scene developer 'IDC', we can now take a peek into the insides of the PS4 firmware upgrade packages.

Sadly, it only works on the very old first launch model PlayStation 4 consoles!

Most are aware of Sony's PS Plus 14-Day Free Trial, but according to @UmarDaBest559 there is a glitch for older PlayStation 4 consoles including his own CUH-1001A that allows free PlayStation Plus for life!
Below is an older video showing you the steps are basically almost the same as this new way, but its very strange how this has been patched by Sony on later firmwares but seems to only apply to newer consoles not the older ones.
Deank of multiMAN fame has been testing a patched stage2.bin for Cobra 7.5 CFW which allows you to play unencrypted ISO images burned on disc in your PS3.

Dean already checked that original disc still works with the patch and it supported many different formats for recordable media as outlined below, and hopefully in the near future the next release of REBUG firmware and other CFW packages will include this update.
Great news for those that love having their 'backups' on burned discs, now your PlayStation 3 console can finally enter the era of PS2 and PSX generations, with a nice stack of freshly burned backups sitting on spindle next to your gaming console.

Interactive Discs have been around for a while, it all started long time ago back with 'laser discs' those big 12" costly suckers that were easy damaged and we had a few interactive games on it, then 3DO and Panasonic come along making it better with their direct CDi format and we saw much better games and even electronic encyclopedias were born back then, but in today's generation of gaming consoles buried in them is the support for Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) and even tho it has the power to handle simple games,...
