MS digital rights management scheme cracked

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "An anonymous coder named 'Beale Screamer' claims to have broken the Version-2 Microsoft digital
rights management (DRM) scheme, and has produced the source code and a DOS utility to
un-protect .WMA audio files.

The author's zipped file contains a lengthy description of the MS DRM weaknesses, a philosophical
tract explaining why he thinks it necessary to crack, the source code, and the command-line utility."
