"This is a very basic, but [powerful] crypto attack that I have used to decrypt both [HD DVD and Blu-ray] formats," he wrote. "After reading posts of people trying to get the keys in memory, I realized, I have a different way of looking into the problem...A lot of people try to attack the software, I'm attacking the data!"|
"So I spent more time analyzing the data, to look for patterns or something special to mount my known-plaintext attack," Muslix64 explains. "Because I know the keys are unprotected in memory, I can skip all the [painful] process of code reversal."
