Blu-ray Encryption Defeated
|The hacker Muslix64 who cracked HD DVD strikes again by defeating Blu-ray Disc encryption!!!|
The HD-DVD hack is a java based command line utility (source code is AVAILABLE!) that decrypt video files (.evo) from a disk that you own, to your hard drive and you can play them back…
Basically on Blu-ray disk, Muslix64 is using a plain text attack on data…
This is a very basic, but [powerful] crypto attack that I have used to decrypt both [HD DVD and Blu-ray] formats, he wrote.
After reading posts of people trying to get the keys in memory, I realized, I have a different way of looking into the problem A lot of people try to attack the software, I’m attacking the data! So I spent more time analysing the data, to look for patterns or something special to mount my known-plaintext attack,
Muslix64 explains. Because I know the keys are unprotected in memory, I can skip all the [painful] process of code reversal. read more at http://dailytech.com/Bluray+Encryption+Defeated/article5795.htm
