Submission + - AirTunes private key cracked->

An anonymous reader writes: Hacker James Laird has reportedly extracted the private RSA key for the AirTunes (RAOP) protocol from the ROM of his AirPort Express. If confirmed, third party media software such as VLC ( http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.videolan.vlc.devel/77383 ) could convince iTunes that they are valid Apple ApEx.

The public key had already been exposed by Jon Lech Johansen a few years ago.
