No, It’s not a post on politics or demagogy: it’s about foolishness!!! HD-DVD, one of the 2 “standards” of the future of Home-Movie (and Digital Video Storage in general), seems to be cracked… already.

An anonymous cracker, called muslix64, have published a post on Doom9 about a very little Java program that is capable of Rip AACS-Encrypted video from an HD-DVD.

More info on a page of Wikipedia dedicated to this program, BackupHDDVD. Source, The Inquier IT.

What about foolishness? Do you remember the HDDVD vs. Blue-Ray Disc war? :D :D :D
