Blu-ray AACS content protection hacked by Muslix64

Posted on Sunday, January 21 2007 @ 20:55:21 CET by

Earlier this month an anonymous hacker, nicknamed Muslix64, hacked the HD DVD content protection. This weekend he did the same thing with the Blu-ray AACS content protection, without any Blu-ray equipment but with the help from a forum member from Doom9.

Muslix64 received some files and memory dumps from the Lord of War Blu-ray movie from Doom 9 forum member Janvitos. He then used his known-plaintext attack method to decrypt the files, less than 24 hours later he was able to play the files in VideoLan.

You can follow the conversation at the Doom9 forum. Muslix64 also linked to a 7MB file which is a seven seconds 1920 x 1080 pixels copyright notice from Lord of War.

Pirated versions of HD DVD movies like Serenity are already available on the Internet on some torrent sites but they spread slow because of the huge 20GB file sizes.
