Yep. At the moment, it's likely that Sony has already had analysed the heap overflow exploit, and they are probably coding on how to patch it and implementing it into a new firmware update right now. I'd predict that a new firmware update will take place somewhere later in this month.

This automated ban system will take a while to be fully implemented, because there are other things that are needed to be conducted - e.g. a risk assessment and a lot of testing - they wouldn't want to ban innocent PS3 users by accident, right?
Sony banning users a day after the existence of PSGroove is also highly unlikely.
I don't think they will ban anyone this soon, but the next firmware update will definitly be dangerous for those using the exploit. Maybe PSN doesnt have he required logging system o detect it, but there is no doubt that a new firmware could detect backup manager and report it to Sony.
This is just me, but I'd say if you ever want to get online at all with your PS3, you'd better stay away from this exploit because ban WILL happen, we just don't know when yet.
maybe sony thought it wouldnt be hacked so no need for checking what is being played and buy who

Saying that, I don't see how they could ban for this right now, particularly not console ban. The XBL EULA has always stated that tampering with the machine is a bannable offence and Xtreme existed for well over a year before the first banwave because they wanted to work on an effective way to implement bannings play upon the scene's arrogance at the time.
This solution requires no traditional method of tampering with the console and to some extent is as easy to use as a pen drive. Sony will quickly patch this with an update and then in order to continue using PSN users will likely have to use a CFW, hence liable for a console ban for tampering with the system kernel, or use a homebrew app which spoofs the console OS revision, hence possible account/console ban for violating the PSN ToS.
This and the XBL/LT debate are different in almost every way so it's probably best not to confuse them.
I couldn't resist the urge. I have 2 PS3s. I bit the bullet and upgraded the old fat one running Linux to 3.41 and played all night online with my backups. I have a different PSN ID on that box.
I figure someone will figure out how to get Linux back on so i became a global guinea pig in the name of science.
Let's see when the banhammer doppith
DJLO, you should have tested out those Backup Managers that supposably show up as games.
there is a "Stealth Backup Manager" on ps3hax. can anyone confirm that??
Yes. All it does is use a Motostorm 2 Game I.D....
They may be plenty of other ways Sony can detect backups.. so its probably just a false sense of security.
I just saw that to has anyone tested it?
