Unnamed security researchers report to have have made the Xbox console run Linux without a mod chip.
CNET’s news.com is reporting that an un-named group of “Xbox security researchers” have found a way to make Microsoft’s game console run the Linux operating system without the need for a traditional “mod chip.” The group is keeping the details and their identity secret until Microsoft responds to their discovery. The group is hoping that Microsoft will act to correct problems that could lead to game piracy, but also to allow Xbox owners to run Linux on the console.
