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.

If God had a beard, he'd be a UNIX programmer.
