Hack the planet

Nintendo's reputation for fighting hackers every step of the way in commendable, but it would seem that by pairing itself with tech giant Nvidia - whose Tegra silicon powers the console - the Japanese giant is going have to accept that things aren't as nailed-down as they used to be.

We've already seen hackers exploit weaknesses in the Switch's architecture to install emulators, and now the fail0verflow hacking group has revealed a video of Linux running on the console. This extends to full touchscreen support and a web browser.

fail0verflow claims that the exploit used to bypass the Switch’s security cannot be patched on the current model of the console, but hasn't so far released details on how the hack works.
