Default Hackers close to unlocking the Switch

Thanks to an Nvidia backdoor

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn claiming that hackers are on the verge of opening the Nintendo Switch thanks to Nvidia being rather too forthcoming about the GPU.

Throughout 2017 hackers had been recording partial vunerablities on the firmware but had no joy at completely knocking it over.

Now according to Ars Technica hackers have discovered a Webkit flaw that allows for basic "user level" access to some portions of the underlying system and a service-level initialisation flaw that gives hackers slightly more control over the Switch OS. Last month at the 34th Chaos Communication Congress (34C3) in Leipzig Germany, hackers Plutoo, Derrek, and Naehrwert outlined an intricate method for gaining kernel-level access and nearly full control of the Switch hardware."
