The group hacking effort, lead by an anonymous programmer going by the alias "muslix64", claim to have been able to decrypt and play commercial Blu-ray media as well as HD-DVD discs.

Yesterday "muslix64" made the following post of the Doom9 forum:

In less that 24 hours, without any Blu-Ray equipment, but with the help of Janvitos, I managed to decrypt and play a Blu-Ray media file using my known-plaintext attack...

The file from the movie "Lord of war", play well with VideoLan.

Janvitos gave me few files on the BD disc and a memory dump...

Note that I don't address BD+. The file don't seem to be BD+ protected.

I will keep you informed If I found anything new...

The news that Blu-ray media (at least this disc) isn't protected using BD+ is very interesting indeed.  I would imagine that this will change pretty quickly now that a crack is in the wild.

In this post here "muslix64" explains the principal behind the plain-text attack and the pre-alpha version of BackupBluRay v0.01 is announced here.

Things are moving fast.
