Rumor: PlayStation Network Outage Possibly Due to Custom Firmware

Rumors have been circulating for a couple days that there was a custom firmware being used known as ‘Operation: Rebug’. These rumors have partially been confirmed through a pretty credible source. Essentially, this custom firmware allowed users to setup false developer accounts. While using these accounts, it allowed users to add funds to their account which could be used on anything on the PSN Store. This exploit is reportedly simple and no one knows how many people may have exploited this custom firmware.

It makes sense why they would have pulled PSN as a precaution. Who knows how much the smaller game developers lost through this glitch. But as always, while this is most likely true it will remain a rumor until PlayStation comments on such a topic.
