I just read this post over at hackaday.com. Looks like some security guys figured out away to link 200 Playstation 3 game counsels together, to crack one of the standard security encryption methods that are used on the internet. The cluster of PS3s only took 2 days to crack the encryption, and there were able to forge Certificate Authorities for various websites.
Cool what you can do with a PS3, isn’t it?
