Submission + - HD-DVD AACS DRM Cracked?

robizzle writes: New DRM standard, used in HDDVD and Blueray, AACS (Advanced Access Content System) has seemingly been beaten. According to a post on Doom9 by muslix64, his new BackupHDDVD tool decrypts and dismantles AACS on a Windows PC.

Full source code has been provided along with the java executable. Youtube video also provided here.
