Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs Probably Won’t Be Cracked For A While

Well, that’s what this writer thinks based on the fact that DVDFab won’t decrypt or circumvent AACS 2.0. I say that it’ll be cracked within weeks.

The new Ultra HD Blu-ray standard, however, takes it up a notch. AACS 2.0 has a "basic" version that sounds quite similar to existing AACS, but also an "enhanced" version of DRM that requires the playback device to download the decryption key from the Internet. There might still be a hole in the AACS 2.0 crypto scheme that allows for UHD discs to be ripped, but presumably it'll be a lot tougher than its predecessors.
