A massive list of 72 AACS 2.0 keys is circulating on the Internet, allowing people to rip previously well-protected UHD Blu-ray discs. The leak is a massive setback for Hollywood and the licensing company AACS LA, who have done everything in their power to keep UHD discs secure.
A Russian company has released a Windows application that claims to rip UHD Blu-ray discs. The tool, dubbed ‘DeUHD,’ currently supports a limited number of drives and discs but is the first commercially available application to decrypt AACS 2.0 protected discs.
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.
