AACS Authority Revokes Compromised DVD Keys

The group that created the AACS copy protection system has revoked the keys that were recently compromised, which allowed Hi Def content to be compromised.  Mandatory software player updates are on the way for PC based players.  Micahel Ayers, chairman of the AACS Licensing Administrator said that he fully expects there will be future attempts to break the system.  You've got that right, Michael.  Let the games begin.

Details are in the San Jose Mercury News and the Register.
