Check the following text that he has posted:

To people new to this site, three honest to god facts about me
* I have never pirated a PS3 game in my life, nor helped or encouraged people to do so
* I have never played PlayStation online, never mind cheated, nor helped or encouraged people to do so
* I have never hacked anything that I did not own or without consent of the owner

The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly.

If you unaware of the whole story, the young hacker George Hotz aka GeoHot was involved in the PlayStation 3 firmware 3.55 jailbreak. The 21 year old New Jersey Geohot is well known in the jailbreak and unlock community. Sony sued GeoHot. After that, US District Judge Susan Yvonne Illston approved Sony’s request for temporary restraining order (TRO) against GeoHot. The young hacker has been ordered to immediately stop the distribution of Homebrew Signing Tools for PS3 3.55 Jailbreak.

    As a so called security expert Geohot should have taken steps necessary to prevent the misuse of what he found… Cuz of what Geohot did and how he released his findings people will be feeling the repercussions for some time to come.nnSorry geohot but your in the wrong this time. I applaud the ideal but you failed by how you delivered it.nnNext time think about the possible repercussions of what you do before you do it…n
