BD+ cracked, so much for DRM.

Remember that story about Sony introducing a protection medium called BD+? Well the sly guys at SlySoft have pulled a fast one on Sony. They have managed to crack the BD+ layer, with their latest beta of AnyDVD, namely 6.1.9.6.

This means you can backup your Blu-ray movies and play them without the need for HDCP-compliant equipment. The product also includes a note to Twentieth Century Fox about its assumptions on BD+ and how wrong they were. (The irony, the logo of the product is a fox!)

I fondly remember Sony saying this will take years to crack, well it seems like months to me.
