SlySoft, a developer of DVD cloning software, claims to have completely cracked the BD+ DRM protocol guarding Blu-ray discs. BD+ is a small virtual machine environment included on Blu-ray discs; HD DVDs lacked the feature. Last year, SlySoft said it had hacked the BD+ environment to allow encoded movies to be ripped to a hard drive and viewed using a specific version of its CloneDVD software.
Now, SlySoft is claiming that version 220.127.116.11 of its AnyDVD HD program has completely broken the BD+ copy protection, allowing transcoding of the video into an unprotected form. About a year ago, SlySoft cracked HD DVD.
