Nintendo SWITCH has been hacked

Something i found on the side while looking up IBS drama.

The Nintendo Switch seemingly has been hacked. If you personally own a switch, consider looking into this. Since I myself do not own a switch I can neither verify or explain how this works, but the TLDR of this is:

>All Switch consoles have an exploitable hardware error
>Jam a Paperclip in a certain spot into the console
>keep it sticked in there
>Console is now in developer mode and can be "hacked"
>this can not be patched or hotfixed
>this will likely only work on the 15 Million Switch Concoles made between 2017 and now
>future consoles will likely have a fix for this

Rumor has it the current president of Nintendo (Kimishima), who was in office since the cancer death of Iwata, is resigning from his position due to this shameful display. Depending how explotable the hack is, this could turn out turn out to cost Nintendo Japan Millions of Dollars.

I highly doubt this is true.
The 3DS has been hackable this whole time. Nothing can be done about it, either.
That said, he might resign due to the fact that he doesn't make any public appearances, he was a "bean counter" before, and he might not feel like he can handle the job.
We probably won't know until the next console if he's able to handle it or not (since that'll be the first one he had to do on his own, switch had some Iwata behind it)
