Default AACS broken. (HD DVD encryption)

Some wackjob broke the hd dvd security in two weeks time after his pc failed to play hd dvd content on his hd monitor because the vid card wasnt HDCP.

The sourcecode is there & it's quite simple: a key can be fished out of your memory and with it you can break the entire encryption. I couldn't test it myself because I don't have a HD DVD, but it looks genuine.

technically it was already cracked before, but this time it's an 'easy' fix. (10kb java prog)
