@DABYX this is kind of just general hacking because I don’t really know anything about hacking game systems in particular. But, in general there are plenty of hackers that send the information they obtain to companies.

First, many companies rely on these types of hackers to test their product and find these things that can be exploited because the amount of time and money spent to find them all in security testing would have the product make them $0. If it’s in the internet, even better, because they now have an immediate focus point on what is the most important to fix rather than waste time going through emails to find all the possible issues and lay them out.

So don’t think that companies for one minute are little lambs that have now been surrounded by wolves and never saw this coming. Everything in a business is money related. Nintendo employs hackers and some of them are far better than any hacker distributing software. They’re not stupid.

Another example (because there might be a lot of them but…) :

Sometimes they ask the company for a fee for their information or if it’s particularly tricky they might off to even resolve the issues for a fee.

If the company ignores the hacker and situation for whatever reason (and yes it is extremely possible they would ignore someone, think about how many emails they get a day from people with ‘issues’ on their systems they should know about that don’t even exist.) is one reason a hacker might release it on the internet for others.

Others may not even bother contacting the company and just release it online.

Releasing a bunch of hack that are proven to work because the community uses them (including those wanting to pirate games) is a really attractive digital job portfolio. It demonstrates skill in a manner that isn’t something you can show off any other way other than his many users are able to use this vulnerability to their advantage without it being addressed. It’s not about “discussing it further” so much as “look at how big my discovery actually was.”

That’s not the only example, but the hacker above would describe and answer your question fitting under this ‘innocent’ hacking view. I hope it was an actually helpful example.
