Default Xbox 360 flaw makes machine hackable

A FLAW in the Xbox 360 DVD firmware could allow the forces of darkness in the hacking world to install custom firmware in the machine.

According to Xboxic, here, the hack has been found by a bloke who goes by the handle ‘TheSpecialist’ and has found a few firmware hacks before.

Mr TheSpecialist said that the hack enables a person to gain full control of what the DVD will accept and would mean that the drive could gain the capability to boot backups of original game DVDs.
