Vista DRM cracked

From the Inquirer:

A POOR WEE student is more or less in hiding after working out a way of cracking Microsoft's Vista Protected Media Path DRM.

Alex Ionescu is a kernel developer, reverse engineer, and, ironically a Microsoft Student Ambassador says his hack means that punters can play HDDVD on 'un-certified' computers. These, dear readers, are computers that are not barking mad - so there's precious few of them.
