+ - First AACS Blue-Ray/HD-DVD key revocation

Submitted by
Thomas Charron
Thomas Charron writes "An update posted for Intervideo WinDVD 8 confirms that it's AACS key has been possibly revoked. WinDVD 8 is the software which had it's device key compromised, allowing unfettered access to Blue-Ray and HD-DVD content, resulting in HD movies being made available via many torrent sites online. This is possibly the first known key revocation which has taken place, and little is known of the actual process used for key revocation. According to the release, "Please be aware that failure to apply the update will result in AACS-protected HD DVD and BD playback being disabled. ", which pretty much confirms that the key revocation has already taken place for all newly released Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs."

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
