WebKit 3.30-3.36

Post by xyz »

Since this was patched by Sony in 3.50 there's probably no reason to hold onto it anymore.

The vulnerability used is CVE-2014-1303 which was discovered by Liang Chen of Keen Team. You can read about it more here: ... Not-WP.pdf ... Or-Not.PDF

The archive contains vitasploit ported to 3.36. Other firmwares will not work. The exploit itself works on all PS Vita systems with firmware versions 3.30-3.36.

We've been holding on to this exploit for a while now and I was hoping Sony would let it slip in 3.50. Still, it's a very interesting exploit and it's likely that it works on other devices (PS4 before 2.50, of course).
I'm going to add xyz's port for 3.36 to the vitasploit repository, which will now have two separate exploit methods. If anyone has a 3.30 or 3.35 unit and would like to mess around with WebKit, just let me know so I can port it to those firmware versions as well.

By the way, in addition to the PDF from blackhat that xyz linked to, there's also this: ... st2015.pdf

Those are the slides from Keen Team's Liang Chen's presentation at CanSecWest. Three different vulnerabilities are described in detail and it's definitely a good read.

Nice work
If you need US PSN Codes, this technique is what I recommend.

I think 3.18 is still > 3.36 which is the fw im stuck on because renaming EBOOTS and putting it into the game folder is a pain in the ****
