PS4 Dev bigboss confirms PS4 Kernel exploit with dlclose, says next step is Jailbreak
bigboss is not sharing any source code, only some output from tools libps4/ps4link/ps4sh (so it’s a stretch to call this “Proof of concept”), but it’s great news to know that more hackers have been able to use CTurt’s work and articles, and turn them into usable exploit for their own research.
Two weeks ago, bigboss had published a similar confirmation with another kernel exploit, the now popular BadIRET exploit which has been partially leaked a few days ago.
Because no code is shared, this of course needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, but bigboss is a trusted scene member, and there’s also no reason to believe the dlclose exploit is “not a thing”, given the lengthy details CTurt has made available about it.
Privilege scalation done 🙂 https://t.co/iSoRnGxDLO

At the very end of his log output, bigboss states:
Next will be jailbreak and sandbox 🙂
Disclaimer: he’s not talking of a release here, just what the next step for his coding efforts. Details on the BSD jailbreak, etc… have been disclosed before by CTurt.
