Xbox 360 security and putting Linux on the box

by: John -
The folks over at Free60.org are trying to put Linux on the Xbox 360. Now, Microsoft has said they've done a lot to try and prevent hacks that made the original Xbox so popular. With that said, this documentation page lists a few of the security schemes that the 360 employs. I like how the CPU is a big part of checking to make sure everything's kosher. If not the Xbox 360, "panics and blows up!", as the documentation page states. The information is from "someone on IRC" so there's not telling if this is all true or not. if it IS all true, I will pay money to see that happen.

Thanks digg!
