Oups, I did it again!

In less that 24 hours, without any Blu-Ray equipment, but with the help of Janvitos, I managed to decrypt and play a Blu-Ray media file using my known-plaintext attack...


The file from the movie "Lord of war", play well with VideoLan.


Janvitos gave me few files on the BD disc and a memory dump...


Note that I don't address BD+. The file don't seem to be BD+ protected.


I will keep you informed If I found anything new...

Ha, and just when I was worried that the HD DVD crack would hurt HD DVD, here muslix does the same to BR! I definitely don't condone piracy, but I think it's hilarious that Sony's house of cards is beginning to collapse.

^ Did I ever say that HD DVDs "house of cards" wasn't collapsing? I didn't mean to be taken that way.

I think most people expected a similar compromise for BD, since essentially the same crappy software plays both and exposes the keys for both...


It will be interesting to see how the two formats and AACS reacts to this.

No, though I guess that wasn't as amusing to you



I think it is all pretty amusing in many ways. The reactions are going to be the really interesting parts though.

Well at least Blu-Ray has BD+. From what I understand ...they cracked a Blu-Ray title, Lord of Wars, without the BD+ layer.

Not a single title has used BD+, so it's a non-issue. Hollywood is going to have to learn. If you have the disc, you have the content, no matter how hard you want to keep it from the consumer.

Both of these compromises will only affect current titles. Once AACS revokes the keys for these players then no new titles will play in them.

It doesn't do anything about unencrypted content floating around ********** or USENET. There's no way to even determine which key was used to decode the content in that case, so there's nothing to revoke.

OMG ...Sony and BDA has been bragging about this advantage over HD DVD for the longest time and you mean to tell me they have not implemented this feature with current titles?? I am a big supporter of Blu-Ray but Sony management has done nothing but screw up! If they were half as competent, this format war could of have been history by now!

Oh hoooray!!!! BD has BD+, consumers around the world rejoice! The best copy protection right now is the large size of the file. MuslimX does it again.

Any one of these formats copy systems can be cracked.

Don't know about that, but these two haven't been "cracked". They've been "hacked". Very important difference from a security perspective.


And maybe it's pedantic, but when coupled with "copy system" I couldn't resist.

It would be funny if it turned out the keys came from the PS3.

BD+ was being kept in reserve; it's not a 'mistake' on their part. No one wanted to use it if they didn't have to (except maybe FOX). But this whole thing will end up a positive for BD vs HD DVD in the eyes of the studios (and a negative for everyone revenue-wise). BD+ will offer an additional protection layer for future instances, and ROM-Mark prevents mass replication piracy. Any BD copies would have to be burned. Not that that doesn't sting, but it's a different order of magnitude on the piracy scale.

Except if you read the Doom9 threads, you already know it didn't.

svpalliance has been talking about hardware additions to the software players to prevent exactly this. Cost of playing movies on a PC will probably go up.

What about the PS3? Sony can't really add hardware to it at this point in time, anymore. Granted, it might not be as easy to use for extracting volume keys, but I guess sooner or later it might be cracked, too.
