Multimedia, AV If the rumours are true, and if this Pastebin post (be sure to mirror the key if that won't get you in trouble with your authorities) is legitimate, then it looks like High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection has been cracked so hard its mother's mother felt it. HDCP is a copy protection mechanism which protects the audio and video streams sent over DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI.

Any time a new type of copy protection comes around it is called "uncrackable".

Yes, apparently about a century after the Titanic sank, people still believe that it's "impossible" to do something that is, well, obviously not just possible... but highly likely.

I think it's all marketing lies from the guys who make their money off this broken garbage. Sadly, people believe it... otherwise it wouldn't be put in so many products. And marketing people love this because they know just about everyone believes their bullshit.
