Rumor: Xbox One Hacked, Homebrew On The Way

It looks like the Xbox One console has already been hacked after only a few months, an online report published today reveals.

According to, the new Microsoft console has already been hacked, as stated by users of the #xbonehack EFnet lobby. While the console has already been hacked, it will take a few months to see actual things done with the console and see some homebrew applications.

Logs from the room also seem to suggest that the most radical situation that could have possibly happened did indeed happen, most likely referring to the discovery of the keys used to sign Xbox One software.

Unfortunately, if this is all true, could lead to piracy being rampant on the console, something that Microsoft definitely doesn’t want on its new console. The company already had to deal with the piracy situation with the Xbox 360, where it wasn’t too difficult to mod the console to run pirated software.

Since there’s no actual proof of the hacking, we must consider all this as a rumor. We will let you know more about the matter as soon as proof emerges on it so stay tuned for all the latest updates.
