It’s hilarious that pirates are using anti-piracy measures to protect its own paid software that helps others to run pirated games on Nintendo Switches.

Hacking group Team Xecuter—the developers of Nintendo Switch jailbreaking software SX OS that helps gamers play homebrewed and pirated games on the console—has itself been caught using anti-piracy measures in its own code that can brick your Switch, if it detects you are trying to crack it for unauthorized distribution.

If you own a Nintendo Switch, you must be aware that to fight piracy on the console, the company has an anti-piracy measure in place that uses encrypted certificates to verify a game’s legitimacy. If it detects any pirated game or modified console, the Switch immediately gets banned from the company’s online servers.
