During the second half of 2010, the first PS3 USB Hack dongles were made avaliable to the public.
The USB dongle with the right software installed, allowed the bypass of security features on the PS3. Sony soon released firmware updates to the PS3 which stopped the work around, but this again was bypassed. A game of cat and mouse commenced between Sony and the hackers.
Sony eventually managed to ban the USB dongles, but they are still avaliable in some regions for those on the correct firmware.
