There’s quite a buzz among movie pirates who have an eye for high-quality video. After the first Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc leaked last month, two more releases have now followed. While some have rumored that AACS 2 encryption may have been cracked, a bypass is just as likely. And with the leakers themselves staying quiet, the mystery remains.
A few hours ago a pirated copy of the ”Smurfs 2” UHD Blu-Ray Disc appeared on the well known private torrent trackers UltraHDclub and IPT. The release suggests that the AACS 2.0 encryption technology used to protect these discs may have been circumvented for the first time. However, without further details, it’s probably wise not to jump to conclusions too quickly.
