Earlier last week, PlayStation 3 hacker from Germany was stormed by police. Although Sony is currently suing him for €1 million, he decided to flout the whole corporation by setting free his hacking tools.

Alexander Egorenkov, known as Graf_chokolo, had his PS3, hacking kit, and account information stalled by police due to court order. However, Egorenkov striked back by throwing “Hypervision Bible” online and his tools, which lease anyone to reverse-engineer their PlayStation 3.

Here is what he said upon his latest act.

“The SONY’s laywer asked me why I’m doing what I’m doing, because of my hatred for SONY? He cannot understand why I’m doing it, because he is paid for what he does. I’m not. I don’t hold a grudge against SONY even now Hatred clouds your mind, keeps you from more important things. I have a better use for my mind and knowledge.”

“So, SONY you failed again, you took my equipment but my mind is still free and you canot (sic) control it. You failed again. They are just tools, I can get new ones and will continue my HV reversing and bringing back PS3 Linux which you took from us. If you want me to stop then you should just kill me because I cannot live without programming, HV and Linux kernel hacking You know who am I and where I live, so come and get me!!!”
