The Advanced Access Content System (AACS) Licensing Authority (the dudes in charge of HD DVD copy protection measures) has confirmed that the security measures of certain HD DVDs has been cracked. The hack, which is the work of a person posing as muslix64, doesn't actually apply to all HD DVDs, though. In other words, muslix64's hack only works on a few HD DVD titles and isn't as widespread as some people were hoping for. Listen closely: you can hear the movie industry breathing again (if only for a short while).
