    Chinese hacker group, BlueDisk-CFW, releases leaked tool which circumvents the game console's latest 3.60 firmware that had plugged security holes from the unauthorized access by another hacker group last year. A Chinese hacking group says it has released a Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) custom firmware which can circumvent the firmware on the game console.

    BlueDiskCFW released the custom firmware CFW which contains the LVO encryption keys to enable users to bypass the current PlayStation Network (PSN) passphrase security protocol, according to The Hacker News Web site on Wednesday.
