The controversial ripping tool AnyDVD has released a new beta version that allows users to decrypt and copy UHD Blu-Ray discs. The software makes use of the leaked keys that came out recently and appears to work well. Meanwhile, disc drive manufacturers are patching security holes.
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.
