Security researcher David Vieira-Kurz of website MajorSecurity.com recently reported a critical security issue on the PS Vita web browser. 2.05 is impacted as well, so technically all Vita owners are currently at risk with this issue.
Am I the only one concerned that Sony seems to be eager to fix our harmless homebrew exploits faster than actual security issues which would allow third parties to steal your personal information? I’m sure I’ll have fanboys go against me for that, but at the end of the day, how much credibility can we give to a service company that puts its own interests before that of its clients’ security?
If you’re running on 2.05 or less (which we currently all are), you are definitely at risk, so it is recommended that you don’t go to those fishy websites you use to enjoy on your vita… until Sony fixes the issue.
Oh, and as I’m sure some of you will ask… no, I don’t think anything here can be leveraged to turn this into a “useful” exploit for the scene
