DVD Security Group Says It Has Fixed AACS Flaws

hyrdra They didn't fix anything (388 comments)

They didn't fix any flaws. They just deactivated old keys and issued new ones. Supposedly InterVideo will be patched to be more secure (aka try to hide the new key). Maybe that is what they are talking about but it still does not fix any flaws by a long shot. Just look at all the cracked versions of software out there that have all kinds of fancy safety and protection mechanisms and are still cracked daily. As long as its in memory in unencrypted form for any amount of time, it can be obtained.

What they have done is analogous to re-keying a lock that is susceptible to being picked -- it's only a matter of time before it is picked again. Lather, rinse, repeat. And how long before a hardware player is cracked? If I had one I'd bust into it to see what kind of flash it has. It probably has an on-board JTAG or other programming port to dump the memory like most consumer devices which are mass produced and then flashed assembly style, making obtaining the key quite easy. When the players come down in price I fully expect them to be cracked on a daily basis.

Job wanted!

Well,

If you're looking for an IT professional in Columbus, Ohio or the Westerville area please contact me.

Life is really great. I always thought luck had nothing to do with success. Now I see it's not only luck, it's blind luck.

ALL TROLLS (EVEN ONES WITH CUT OFF HAIR) READ THIS

hyrdra hyrdra writes  |  more than 12 years ago

Well this is just to all the damn trolls out there.

STOP moderating on something because you don't agree with it! Moderate based upon POST QUALITY! Y'all known I got skillz, so you better dish this l33t script kiddy some points!

How dare they break my Karma fetish of 50! 48, I've never!

My virgin entry

hyrdra hyrdra writes  |  more than 12 years ago

Well, now I can say I've broken the quality seal on my virgin Journal. If I have time later I'll actually submit some interesting shit about my life, heck, maybe enthrall you with my journalistic and literary talent (that was a joke).

Anyway, if you feel like something to do e-mail me...I could use a good converstation!
