HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Protections Fully Broken
Posted by Zonk on Tuesday February 13, @01:12PM

gEvil (beta) writes "According to an article at BoingBoing, the processing keys for the AACS encryption scheme used by both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray video discs have been extracted, and a crack has been released. What this means is that there is now a method to extract the copy-protected content of any HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc out there. This is different from Muslix64's previous crack, which only extracted the volume key for each disc. This new method bypasses this step and allows anyone to extract the data without first requiring the volume key."

I'm thrilled, frankly. I was seriously worried that this time around things might be harder.

My only regret is that it seems to have affected both formats. I can't wait for someone to drive a stake through the heart of one or the other and end this stupid fucking format war.
