A new Blu-ray firmware update has fixed a flaw in the format's DRM, which made the discs susceptible to piracy.
The update is for BD+ and makes the format secure once more, after companies like SlySoft, creators of the AnyDVD HD software, bragged about finding a way around the disc's DRM.
Admittedly, someone called James on the http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=21985 does think that the new update won't hold for long, saying that he "estimates February 2009 for the new BD+ to be defeated."
While the new update doesn't affect all movies, there are many new releases that it does, including: Futurama: Bender's Game, Shine A Light, and X-Files 2. The full list can be found on the SlySoft forums.
Word about the Blu-ray hack first got out in November, where folks at the Doom9 forum found a DRM get around. More PlayStation 3 News...
