  • Forget 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0

    Forget the whole uproar over 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0, there's something a little more interesting happening on the sidelines.
    Only a few days after Corel issued a WinDVD update to close the hole opened by AACS hackers, the folks at the Doom9 forums sent word that they have found yet another way around the copy protection for high definition discs. This time, the method involved the Xbox 360's HD DVD add-on drive to capture the "Volume Unique Keys" as they were being read by the drive itself. Rather than just point out the crack, we're going to take a closer look at how this crack was accomplished, because one of the hackers involved in the crack says that it's more or less unstoppable.

    Cool! Doom9 FTW again.

        I really dont see why companies spend money trying to stop piracy.....its never gonna happen. Heck, I am inclined to believe that at least a small percentage of the people who write code to stop piracy, go home and write the antithesis right after work.

        They really should focus on making a product that more people feel good about buying. Lord knows, even recently ive bought a few things that almost immediately Id wished I pirated so I could delete it and be out nothing.

          Trying to stop piracy does nothing but increase it. It doesn't stop pirates and it drives frustrated people who weren't pirates to piracy.

            I don't think of these things in terms of "piracy". They are technological mountains. There are many technological mountain climbers out there looking for new peaks to conquer. They love to blaze the trail up the mountain and then install ropes for those who follow them. "piracy" is almost never the actual motivation for those who are knee deep in bits and bytes.

              I agree with icky; it's taken as a challenge by hackers to try and break the "industry standard" and become king of the mountain.
