PS3 Hacker GeoHot Flees To South America

According to VentureBeat, Sony says that 21-year-old George Hotz, a hacker who reverse-engineered the security system for the PlayStation 3, has fled the country to South America in attempts to avoid a court hearing that he destroyed evidence. “Sony said in a court filing that Hotz, known as GeoHot, lied about having a PlayStation Network account and destroyed his computer hard disks rather than hand them over to Sony’s lawyers. Hotz allegedly wrote code capable of circumventing the security protection on the PS 3 so it can run unauthorized software and pirated games.”
