HD-DVD security crack gains wider exposure

May 8, 2007

Hackers have reportedly cracked the copy protection system used to prevent illegal copying of HD-DVD, and possibly Blu-ray discs, and have posted the key to unlocking the copy protection on various Internet sites.

Last week, Digg.com initially removed articles with the key after receiving a cease-and-desist order, but later reversed its decision to pull the articles after receiving numerous comments from site users criticizing the decision to pull the material.

According to Blu-ray.com, an Advanced Access Content System (AACS) key was “inadvertently leaked to the Web,” beginning the latest round of HD optical disc anti-piracy cracks.

The Drudge Report gave wide exposure to Digg.com’s cease-and-desist saga last week, and in so doing brought the crack to the attention of the public at large.
