The AACS LA, those behind the advanced access content system protecting HD DVD and Blu-ray Discs, today responded to the recent defeat of its technology.
“AACS LA has confirmed that AACS Title Keys have appeared on public web sites without authorization,” read a statement from the AACS Web site. “Such unauthorized disclosures indicate an attack on one or more players sold by AACS licensees.”
The AACS is taking the stance that the exploit found is a wake-up call to all licensees to ensure that the technology is implemented securely. PC software players, such as WinDVD, are particularly vulnerable to hackers.
