Blu-ray copy protection "cracked"
Original article by Jeremy Reimer
According to a post on the Doom9 forums, enigmatic hacker "muslix64" has had some initial success in bypassing the copy protection of Blu-ray discs.
Muslix64, who first came to fame for his work on the BackupHDDVD utility, posted that he was able to decrypt and play a Blu-ray media file without owning a Blu-ray player, by working on a file provided to him by another member of the forum. He claims to have used a "known plaintext attack" to find the encryption key, but did not specify any additional software he was running. The movie he decrypted was titled Lord of War, a suitable choice for the battle between copy protection and those who would defeat it.
MAN I JUST LOVE HACKERS!!! TO ME THEY ARE THE EINSTEIN OF THIS GENERATION!!
