Well..that sure didn’t take long at all now did it? The Nintendo Switch has only been out for a week, but a minor vulnerability has allowed the Switch to already fall prey to hackers.
The hidden web browser on the console supposedly was rushed to production, meaning that there are several vulnerabilities that hackers were able to easily exploit. A well known hacker known by his folowing as qwertyoruiop posted a screenshot on his twitter of the particular Webkit exploit that he has running on his personal Nintendo Switch.
Don’t fret though, as this doesn’t mean anything too serious for the average console’s user-base at this moment and we’re sure that Nintendo will both address and remedy this vulnerability in an update to the system in the near future.
After a bit more digging around, we found that qwertyoruiop has been hard at work on a memory dump. He also clarified for the masses that this was not a jailbreak of the system, but a great starting point for further research and progress.
