257w ago - Just two weeks ago a new Firmware Update was released that beat Blu-ray hackers patching DRM cracks.
Today, SlySoft has announced they have defeated Blu-ray's BD+ DRM protection scheme again as follows:
For Immediate Release: SlySoft defeats Blu-ray's BD+ DRM scheme again
Despite some sites reporting that "SlySoft has been beaten", the Antiguan company renowned for promoting Fair Use Rights has effectively defeated BD+ once again and much earlier than expected; the cat and mouse game of DRM has entered the next round.
Although newer BD+ decryption wasn't expected until February 2009, today's AnyDVD HD 184.108.40.206 release decrypts copy protection on all current Blu-ray movies and, in turn, ensures that consumers may continue to backup and enjoy their Blu-ray movie purchases even when using computer monitors that are not HDCP compliant.
In fact, AnyDVD HD remains the only program that can decrypt all commercial Blu-ray releases, and this incredible magic is, as per usual with AnyDVD HD, performed on the fly without requiring users to rip first to their hard drives.

Regrettably, there's not a lot of details beyond that just yet, but according to the outfit's CEO, the software is ready to rock and should be released before the end of 2007. Chalk (yet another) one up to the hackers.
