Fake!! JPEG “Exploit” on OFW 6.20 by tontunaspi

A message for gamers as the holiday season is here:
Hey Folks, it is the shopping season and that means most of us will be buying gaming stuff in November and December. Wololo.net will be looking for the best deals and let you know about them. For example in July 2016, our twitter followers and mailing list subscribers were among the first to know about an Uncharted 4 Special edition deal for $19, a 75% discount at the time! Follow us on twitter to stay up to date. I also suggest to subscribe to our deals mailing list below for full deal updates. Note: this mailing list is mostly useful for people in the US.

    H@lo World: I don’t know much about the ps3, but I’m pretty sure the encryption system is different. If I were Sony, I wouldn’t put “all my eggs in the same basket”, and I would at least choose a different encryption algorithm for two different hardware categories. To avoid losing all security if one of the machines gets hacked.

    Actually, it’s not a bug, it’s a feature of JPEG files with the EXIF header. I found a free program called Photo Studio that allows you to extract a thumbnail, customize it, and put it back. The edited thumbnail will work in Windows and the PSP (5.50+) (that’s all I tested) 😉

    As for the thumbnail not working on 5.00, maybe they changed the way the thumbnail is grabbed, Possibly:
    5.03 and under = miniature of true image
    5.50 and up = Thumbnail from header
    But I’m just guessing on that part 😛

    Here’s where I got that program: http://www.stuffware.co.uk/photostudio/
