Says graf via his own blog:
Guys, SONY was today at my home with police and got all my stuff and accounts. So be careful from now on.
After the raid, graf (Alexander Egorenkov), uploaded all his databases to the Web, encouraging anyone and everyone to share it so Sony would have a harder time removing it.
Sony did not take that action lightly, sending a legal notice demanding all the links be removed and Egorenkov pay a 750,000 euro fine.
Egorenkhov posted some final comments today:
You know guys, you will say iím totally crazy now, but i never slept better than in the last 2 days I donít know how to explain this feeling but i donít care about those threats with jail and high money penalties, btw, SONY wants about 750.000 euros from me if i donít cooperate They donít know me at all I donít care about it and they might double it The higher is the sum the higher gets my motivation They donít understand what makes me tick. Money and even my life doesnít mean to me very much without knowledge. I have a scientific mind and the knowledge is food to my brain. Without HV, Linux and FreeBSD kernel hacking my life is meaningless.
I miss my HV terribly In the last 2 days i got so ďhungryĒ for more knowledge that i cannot control it anymore. I need knowledge and research, it has a huge meaning in my life. Jail or even death cannot hold it back anymore.
The SONYís laywer asked me why iím doing what iím doing, because of my hatred for SONY ? He cannot understand why iím doing it, because he is paid for what he does. Iím not. I donít hold a grudge against SONY even now Hatred clouds your mind, keeps you from more important things. I have a better use for my mind and knowledge
So, SONY you failed again, you took my equipment but my mind is still free and you canot control it. You failed again. They are just tools, i can get new ones and will continue my HV reversing and bringing back PS3 Linux which you took from us. If you want me to stop then you should just kill me because i cannot live without programming, HV and Linux kernel hacking You know who am i and where i live, so come and get me !!!
And to prove it, i will reopen right now my HV reverse engineering page And i will post my latest findings about Update Manager and BD drive here. Most of you know already that i was able to update CORE OS from Linux. And on the last weekend i tries to hel some PS3 devs with BD drive authentication and discovered some interesting stuff about it which i will post here.
