That ‘magic’ number

The New Acunetix V12 Engine

This is everywhere today. Every major news site has this ‘magic’ number in it. Digg.com had stories with more than 24.000 diggs (that’s actually the first time I see that many).

In case you’ve been in a cave for the last 24 hours, the number above is the ‘Processing Key’ for most movies released so far (in HD-DVD format).

This, along with other things, enables users to watch HD-DVD movies in GNU/Linux. That same number also made possible the creation of BACKUPHDDVD.

Since a number CANNOT be copyrighted, share it!

Not everyone is interested in piracy …

    Digg went crazy last night revolting against the take down of this number twice administratively. The front page of digg was only permutations of this number or it used in different contexts. I’ve got a screen cap of the madness if you would like. But I think this is the first internet revolt in ages. Oh, and just so you know, I hold the copyright on the number 3. And you have used it twice in this article alone. PAY ME!

    it just goes to show you what can happened “.. with the powa of the Inter-WEB!!”

    seriously, watching the rss feed in action on the custom google hompage was a riot in action. It goes to show that electronics freedom really is.

    QUOTED FROM DOOM9:

    I guess its official now.

    The new Processing Key was posted by BtCB on freedom to tinker about a week ago (release day +1).

    its:

    Code:
    45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B2
    Save it. Store it.

    This opens up all newly released (and many to be released) HD DVD and Blu-ray discs. Wanna understand: go here.

    PS. I strongly advise everybody who knows how it was retrieved not to talk about it publicly.
