DVD-Audio CPPM encryption broken

Ryan Block, @ryan
cracked DVD audio

Remember when DVD Jon released the DeCSS crack to decrypt DVD video files a few years back? Seriously, who could forget where they were at that moment? Well, no, he didn't exactly make a comeback to bust on the DVD-Audio standard's supposedly beefed up implementation of what they (once called) the CPPM (Content Protection for Pre-recorded Media) crypto standard, but that certainly didn't stop other peeps from breaking it wide open. It never does. That's right, they cracked DVD audio. Peep the tools over at Engadget fav Rarewares, and happy evil communist music piracy fair use!
