Vista hasn't been out for more than 24 hours and yet rumors are spreading that it's already been hacked. Alex lonescu claims he's hacked Vista's Protected Media Path, a DRM that's designed to degrade the playback quality of HD video when running it on non-HDCP outputs and other hardware components that haven't been approved by Microsoft. The catch is, Alex is hesitant to release his tool fearing that when he does, he'll be swarmed by MS' lawyers. We don't blame him, though we are dying to see what he has.
