Microsoft’s Windows Media DRM 10 Cracked

August 29, 2006

Read the entire news article :here:

A user called “viodentia” on the the doom9.org message boards a DVD conversion has posted links to a program called FairUse4WM that is capable of cracking Microsofts DRM 10, which protects files offered by PlaysForSure-commpatible music stores. The program is an easy-to-use front end to an app called drmbg that strips DRM headers from “secure” WMA files. Although he apparently developed the program to allow people to play their legally purchased music on the device of their choice, the potential for abuse is fairly high.

What does this portend for music subscription services?
