Tools Leaked Online

If you cast your mind back to when Apple refused to unlock an iPhone 5c for the authorities following the San Bernardino incident last year, the company made the argument that if it created a tool for opening up an encrypted iPhone, then it would create the potential for that tool to then fall into the wrong hands and ultimately make iPhone encryption obsolete.
The FBI didn’t agree with this and went ahead and found someone else to do the hacking – Israeli firm Cellebrite, and was rumored to be paid over $1 million to do so, and after a huge outcry over it, neither the FBI would release the info nor the firm of course. -- But never say never to hackers, so in turn the company itself has been hacked and now most of their high-end tools they sell to people like the FBI have been leaked online for all to enjoy for free.

Over 2.5 Million Gamers’ Accounts Now Leaked Online!

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!

After just five days on the market, the Denuvo-protected PC version of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has already appeared on pirate sites!

Pirates say they’ve already cracked Resident Evil 7's PC version and have found a way to disable the game’s anti-piracy measures less than a week after release.
Denuvo usually offers months of protection, so this is not only a record defeat but a landmark moment for the world's most famous anti-piracy technology.

Demonstrating Java Homebrew running on native unmodded PlayStation 3 console, thanks to its BD-J support!

Ukko’s Journey was originally a cellphone game developed by LuBlu Entertainment in 2008-2009, but recently they have been porting it over to Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) format as 'Proof-Of-Concept' that is possible to have good Java games running on our gaming consoles!
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,...

The developer of Yandere Simulator, a game about a sociopathic high school girl who murders her classmates, is demanding answers from Twitch, which banned the game exactly one year ago.

Today, he posted a YouTube video describing his year of begging Twitch for a reason, which he says has led to nothing.
If you have not played Yandere Simulator, you missing out on the real hardcore of gaming action, but tough luck finding someone playing it on Twitch, as its still banned from being broadcast, and the latest is its all due to complains from 'feminists'. :)

HDoomGuy wants the mod to be a giant, absurd orgy that the entirety of hell is in on.

“If only you could talk to the monsters,” a now-infamous review once said of the original Doom. Here’s a thought, though: what if you could fuck them?
Ever since Doom hit the PC Gaming world, people have been modding to hell and back, but one guy has his eyes set of making stay in hell and to turn into satanic type sexual orgy decided to scare the wits out of you, or turn you on, depending on what makes you tick.

The ESEA is an eSports community that runs a popular online Counter-Strike league.

In late December, its security got breached in a big way. Now the details of that breach are coming to light, with 1.5 million users affected after the ESEA refused to pay a hacker $100,000
More bad news for Counter-Strike eSports players, first 'gambling' was banned, then more recently leagues have been shutdown by their owners after Players formed their own union for better pay and sponsorship contracts, and now one of the top community sites have had all their members personal details leaked online, with lots of personal info, including cell phone numbers and private text messages. :(

OverWatch_Cheating_Law.jpg
But, lucky for now only in South Korea under new laws to crackdown on Massive Online Cheating!

Video gamers who cheat while playing online will face five years in prison under a new law passed in South Korea. An amendment to a bill promoting the gaming industry is aimed at targeting those attempting to gain an unfair advantage playing on the internet.
Anyone caught breaking the law which is backing manufacturers and programme makers will face a jail sentence of up to five years or 50million KRW ($43,000) and streams of gamers have already been banned from playing the game Overwatch, and these new laws are mainly aimed at fighting the 'makers' of the aimbotter scripts which come out of places like Korea more so than other countries, and will give the legal power for companies like Blizzard to crackdown on servers hosted in Korea and their authors, more so then attacking the...

The Wonderful Developers behind the World-Famous RetroArch Emulators need your Monthly Help!

Sadly, it has come to point that the developers behind RetroArch need monthly support to keep going on with development and maintaining their build servers for all of us to enjoy using like we have been doing for totally free since the start of the project.


There is not a retro classic gaming fan that has not at least tried out the RetroArch emulators on one of their mobile devices, or modded gaming consoles, as its one of the best out there, its become so popular that even hardware makers are illegally including it in their Arcade projects with Raspberry Pi boards or similar hardwasre, making it very hard on the developers of RetroArch to keep up with all the demand on their schedule to improve the cores and also to keep forking over tons of money each month for the servers that maintain the...

Buy Yours Today, from their Official Shop at NEOSD Store!

Alex from the amazing NEOSD Team has just sent over some information to Modrobert at EurAsia regarding their newly released NEOSD, which just happens to be the World's First FlashCart ever released for NEO-GEO MVS. It's finally about time for Retro Gamers!


It's long over due, but now we no longer have to wait, as NEOSD is finally here, and us Retro Game Lovers can now get some much needed action out of our NEO-GEO MVS systems, as finding original cartridges is so hard and costly these days, and even tho the NEOSD is itself an costly device, its well worth the price because Razoola, the UniBIOS legend of fame, has written an extensive review over at neo-geo.com which...

'Watch Dogs 2' effort leans on AI, as the games developer gets into hacker education.

People tend to think the world of data capture—as it pertains to their online activity—is limited to web clicks. It is not at all, and Ubisoft wants you to understand that as the gaming company promotes its new hacker-themed video game called Watch Dogs 2, which is due out Nov. 15.


Ubisoft is ramping up the hype for their new Watch_Dogs 2 and part of their new campaign is to make people more worried about how bad 'hacking' is, and how easy it is for those evil hackers to grab your smart data and use it from even something as simple as an 'selfie', and part of their 'education' adweek is to teach people about it at the same time promote their game, so check it out today!

But what about Video Gaming Consoles, well its still a 'Grey-Area', since you COULD go ONLINE with them! :)

You may have thought that if you owned your digital devices, you were allowed to do whatever you like with them. In truth, even for possessions as personal as your car, PC, or insulin pump, you risked a lawsuit every time you reverse-engineered their software guts to dig up their security vulnerabilities—until now.


For those that have been living in fear everyday of their lives in the USA because of DMCA that been around for over a decade now, they can finally breath a bit without fear of spending 10 years in jail, because finally for the next 2 years (it will be reviewed then), you will legally be able to rip open something electronic, poke around in it, and hack/mod it, as long as you OWN it, and you doing it in CONTROLLED jab, or you doing it just for your own personal...
