Prominent Nintendo Switch hackers and homebrew developers are set to meet later this month to discuss the current state of the device's security measures, and its potential to be hacked or rooted. Hackers Plutoo, derrek, and naehrwert, who are some of the most prominent hackers and developers in the current Nintendo hacking scene, are set to meet at the Chaos Communication Congress, which is one of the world's largest hacker conferences, in Germany later this month (between the 27th and 30st of December, yet to be confirmed).
While it is not yet confirmed exactly what is to be discussed and announced, it's become something of a trend to announce large, prominent releases or exploit developments after presentations at conferences like this one. Additionally, Plutoo, who will be indefinitely departing from the hacking community post-34C3, recently open sourced nxdbg, a debugger for the Nintendo Switch that requires kernel access, so many are expecting new kernel exploits to be announced at his presentation this year. Seeing as Plutoo announced kernel access on the Switch not too long ago, a timeframe of December-January for release might not be too unrealistic. Regardless, we'll be keeping you updated on any and all developments from 34C3 this year.
What do you guys think? Are you excited to see what developments in the Nintendo Switch hacking world manifest at this conference later this month? Let us know in the comments, or drop a line over on our forums.
