Submission + - HD-DVD encryption crack surfaces

spisska writes: This looks preliminary but genuine. Poster muslix64 at doom9 has put up links to BackupHDDVD, a tool to decrypt a AACS protected movie. The program is written in Java and seems to work by retrieving encrypted keys from memory. Windows-only at the moment, but since it's Java-based, ports should not be difficult.

The post includes links to source and executable [alternate download site] as well as video of the program in action. It's not quite the death of AACS yet, but a significant first step. Congratulations. The paint on the prison isn't even dry yet and there are already holes in the wall.
