Hacker Unlocks Microsoft's DRM PlatformCRM Daily:
A member of the Doom9 Forum known only as "Divine Tao" claims to have defeated Microsoft Relevant Products/Services's Digital Rights Management (DRM) platform for securing the distribution of digital media files over the Internet. According to other Forum members who have already downloaded it, the new utility program for PCs running Windows XP and Vista not only works wonderfully but can even run on Microsoft's Zune player.Eh? Methinks someone read that wrong. It works with the Zune software on Windows, not with the Zune device.
Divine Tao's new upload to the Doom9 Forum is actually an update to a utility first posted by Forum member "Viodentia" way back in April of 2006, after which Microsoft was forced to release two patches as a quick fix. However, Viodentia quickly broke the software giant's fixes.Ironically, this might actually increase sales of songs from Zune Marketplace for a short period of time.
