Hacker KaKaRoTo (real name Youness Alaoui), the fellow behind the PSFreedom jailbreak, thinks the PS3 is now secure after the recent firmware update.

"Their previous errors were epic fails, it doesn't mean they can't do an epic save either.. they seem to have fixed all the issues they had," Youness Alaoui wrote on Twitter (via CVG).

KaKaRoTo says that it looks like the PS3 has been re-secured, adding, "but it doesn't mean it can't be broken again from scratch." Does that mean KaKaRoTo is up to the challenge?

"Oh, before I get flooded: NOT BY ME! I don't really care about breaking the PS3, I'm fine with what we have so far. I will NOT work on it!!"

Sony is currently battling rapper hacker George Hotz, who helped crack the PS3 and posted the console's source code online.

Again, what's the point in battling Geohotz when you could've just hired him to help make the PS3 secure again for probably a lot cheaper than most expensive software devs? I mean, I know it sounds silly to "reward" him for breaking the PS3, but I think having to clean up his mess would be both fair punishment and a good move by Sony.

I'm glad they got the PS3 secure again which means they can do it again in the future, most likely. From now on, it's just going to be a battle between the hackers/crackers and Sony firmware updates. Maybe if Sony is fast enough the one's cracking the thing wouldn't feel that it was worth it to keep trying so hard.
