    While we’ll file this under rumor as the information cannot be verified at this time, hacker SKFU claims to have not only extracted but decrypted PKG archive files for the PS Vita. This comes mere days following the release of his PS Vita firmware extractor.

    How was this possible? SKFU writes on his blog that Sony reused the PSP’s known AES key for securing the files, which was leaked into the wild as a result of various exploits months ago.

    The discovery won’t lead to full-blown, PSP-esque homebrew access, at least not by itself. It will, however, allow those interested to get closer to the raw bits of Vita binaries. Which is something you’d think Sony would do everything in its power to avoid, especially after the recent PS3 security blunder.

    Surely this isn't real, I hope its fake because it needs to last at least a little while before being hacked. Piracy ruined the psp Only if CFW didn't allow piracy I would be a happy camper.

    Not fake.
    Hackers have already made progress. They are soon going to decrypt the ps vita's update files(.PUP), but it requires a key that they will soon have before they can continue.
    Heres their progress.

    i wish hackers would figure out a way to unbrick ps vita easily without sending it to sony.
    of course that would be seen only when vita comes out.but the level of interest shown in hacking vita by hackers is just amazing.
