WiiU 01 May

According to a report by CVG, a group of hackers have claimed they have “completely reversed the Wii U drive authentication, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed for this next generation key”. Although the unidentified group have yet to publicly demonstrate their claim, this is the same group that made one of “the many Wii mod keys available”.

Nintendo responded to the hackers’ brag to CVG in a statement, stating that they are “aware of the hackers’ claims, and is ready to combat any possible threat of piracy.” The game publisher has so far had “no reports of illegal Wii U games nor unauthorized applications playable on the system while in Wii U mode. Nintendo continuously monitors all threats to its products’ security and will use technology and will take the necessary legal steps to prevent the facilitation of piracy.”
