Twice a year, the GeekPwn carnival is held around the world. It's a security geek contest for smart devices, and is often a place for white-hat hackers to show vulnerabilities in devices like smart cameras, mainstream routers and smart devices.
At the latest GeekPwn event, a PlayStation 4 curiously made an appearance. And you know what else popped up? A working version of Linux, Super Mario Bros, and more importantly, version 4.01 of the PS4 firmware..
