    The problem with Internet today is so easy to spread misinformation

    Sadly the recent breaking news story of the Xbox One console being hacked already to run 'homebrew' was FALSE and full of 'misinformation' and many scene sites have posted even more misinformation

    [​IMG]

    Recently, we posted an Xbox One Hacking story which we found on another normally good news site, but we quickly pulled it after we check the original sources and people involved and found it to be filled with misinformation and false facts in regard to the XB1 console and exploit.

    Here is a recent forum post made by one of those mentioned on the 'other sites' that was quoted in the chat log out of context:

    We agree with the above poster, and hope other sites reading this will add an disclaimer to their Xbox One Hacking Story or remove it totally, and help stop spreading more misinformation on the Internet, just because one site quotes the other does not make it true!

      They can easily prove it without having to release the keys. All they have to do is release a signed Hello World app.

      Complete garbage

      This conversation never occurred at all. As someone who has been in #xbonehack since it opened to the public I have a complete log of everything that occurred in chat there. This conversation is a complete fabrication, citing people who aren't even in the channel and as far as I can tell have never been in there. This article should be amended to reflect this information.

      Well I'm not surprised given that Xbox Backup Creator, can already reportedly make rips of XBone Software.
      Sad thing is... Even with Piracy a said-and-done deal I still wouldn't touch this System with an extra large Pole!

      Wait MicroSoft stole S0NYs PRNG Code?
      Code:
      init getRandomNumber
      {
             Return 4; // Chosen by fair dice roll
                       // guaranteed to be random
      }
      THIS IS HILARIUS!!

      Well like I said I'd never buy One of these Spyboxes myself, but if I had... I'd be staying put on my current Firmware for the time being.
      'cause even if my "Slim" is hackable I'm no longer on OFW3.55, and that mean that I'd have to Hardware flash my PS3 again. Not a biggie I have my E3 NOR Flasher to hand. But, why bother when you can Softmod it from OFW3.55 (or wherever the XBone currently is?).

      This article is a clear fabrication. This conversation never occured where they claim. People cited in it have never even been in the channel they claim. Whoever originally wrote it should check their info better, because I have logs for #xbonehack dating back to when the channel opened to the public. As a TeamXecuter channel, if any of this was true, it would be front paged on their website.

      What happened to that XBone Private Keys HACKED Story that was up here this morning?
      It seems to have disappeared...

      It was removed by request of those in chatlog, saying it was more of 'jump the gun' story, and nothing really is found useful in the end, and they didn't want 'false information' to get out, but looks like the 'cat is out of bag' as alot of other sites have reported on it instead.

      Since the original site posted the pastebin of supposed conversation from #xbonehack of efnet of me talking about the implied acquisition of private keys I have tried as hard as possible to get that site, along with others to remove the rumors. As you might have seen, others had confirmed this conversation did not exist in said channel.

      I feel it is necessary now to post that the information in those logs was in fact misinformation, unfortunately out of context and misleading.

      There is no current xbone exploit, or keys found, or anything that I am aware of.

      Please disregard all rumors regarding this information. I am politely asking all sites who have posted these rumors to please remove the news posts as the information is false.

      I just hope the don't sell this to Microsoft...
      Then again this is just One more reason NOT to update the Firmware of the XBone right now, assuming that there is in fact more to this story. But, lets assume that it was a jump the gun story. Why not just correct the Story instead of just yanking it like that? Its all kinds of fishy if you asked me. Assuming that they did what they said they done...

      One of those in chatlog, posted recently on our forums, I moved it to news section and updated it to help hopefully to stop spreading of misinformation on the 'net but you know that is not how it works, if one site tells you that oranges are red, and another site quotes back sourcing the first site, and third site links to as reference on colors, then it must be true, right?

      Restored the previously deleted thread, but removed the false information, so that those still hitting the dead invalid link on other sites, get the proper updated thread instead of a invalid 404 page.

      Also moved posts from other XB1 threads discussing this news item, so that all topics remain on the subject at hand.

      Enjoy the now suddenly longer thread!

      I'm still also on my X360, and I want to go PS4 this time...

      But I hope they hack Xone and make a PC out of it, maybe then later I would buy it for cheap just for backups, and use the PS4 for online gaming and buy the PS plus which is still worth lot more than the XbLive.


      You buy one single PS Plus and you can use it on your PS3, Vita and PS4 and all of them have their own free games
      Keep Cool
