Fishy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tanveer Badar @ 11:28 AM

I just read in a e-zine,

“Digg This: Legal Scare
And finally, let’s explain all this 09-f9-11-02-9d… silliness. This
week, users of a tech site called Digg.com, which publishes user-
submitted links to other sites’ articles and content, posted hundreds
of references to a secret number that can be used to help break the
copy protection in HD DVD movies. In response to a cease and desist
order from the Advanced Access Content System Licensing Administrator,
which controls HD DVD licensing, Digg.com deleted the references to
the number (and many user accounts as well). The result was a user
backlash that saw to it that every post on Digg.com‘s front page
contained the number. Once that happened, Digg.com issued a statement
to its users saying it would cease censoring the posts. How do you use
this code? I have no idea, and I don’t care. But even though the
information is out there, the editors of this newsletter deemed it
inappropriate to publish the number in its entirety, thus the
shortened 09-f9-11-02-9d… version here.”

The thing that sounds suspicious to me how can one number be used to help break copy protection in HD DVD movies? Is this some sort of a back-door? Sony rootkit revisited? Or in the vein of Lord of the Rings; “One key to unlock them all”?
