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. The java command line application is able to decrypt and dump the video right off the disc provided a cryptography key (none included with application, though seemingly easy to obtain.) Full source code has been provided along with the java executable. Youtube video also provided here.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
