Hacker attacks DVD protection

Date: January 18, 2007

A member of a business group behind copy-protection software for next-generation D-V-Ds says it is investigating reports that hackers found a way to circumvent its technology.
Michael Ayers, chairman of the group behind the Advanced Access Content System, says they are "still evaluating and determining what the most appropriate course of action is."

The system was created by a coalition of technology and entertainment companies, including Disney, Microsoft, Intel and Panasonic.

The technology is used to protect high-definition D-V-Ds in both the Blu-ray and H-D D-V-D formats.
