CRACK or circumvention, whatever…someone has written code to decrypt AACS (based on known movie encryption keys), sucessfully ripped and played a HD-DVD to their hard disk. I don’t know if you can call it CRACKED technically, but who cares ?! It is a circumvention of the AACS protection, indeed a start. There is nothing wrong with positing this, this is an article about how the blu-ray security-software authors want to brag about additional security layer on top of AACS, in reaction to the news that someone has decrypted & ripped HD-DVD titles. I agree by telling people about blu-ray disabling pirated titles (even if only to the tech community), they are hurting their cause !
