Bblu-ray-logolu-ray’s copy protection has been broken, according to a Slashdot report on a group effort by doom9 encryption experts. The process is not for anyone afraid of the command line, however, and the copy protection is not actually broken. The underlying AES encryption is still secure, but the process does disable the BD+ security layer. Slashdot also noted that BD+ has previously been compromised by the commercial company SlySoft. The copy protection also was successfully attacked many months ago, but that early process had to be re-calculated for each individual disc.
