The most powerful number in the world, but not the universe (see 42). This series of hexadecimal shit is illegal in the United States, but not in the rest of the world, as they have sane laws (meaning that this number > the First Amendment), and single-handedly brought Digg to its knees like a dominatrix. In the form of a hexadecimal string.


This incredibly boring line of bullshit is basically a code that will unlock every HD-DVD in existence. Fascinating stuff, I know. Apparently some genius hacker, Arzenami, made it and decided to post it on an aspie forum. This sparked an internet circle jerk of panic and rampant nerds getting boners trying the code out and spreading the good word. Everyone keeps posting it everywhere in an attempt to look like an internet tough guy. Google "09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0" for moar info. This basically goes to show that no matter how hard the motion picture industry tries to prevent piracy, they fail.

How he did it

To cut a long and boring story short, what Arzenami did was make the completely un-remarkable assertion that whether you watch or rip the DVD, you'll have to decode it; and to decode it, you need the key. Armed with this, he realized also that to use the key, any software that played HD-DVD's would have to load it into the computer's RAM before it was used in the decryption. What he did then was simply to identify the part of the RAM that the HD-DVD playing software was using, and he then forced a dump to disk of that area of the RAM. Viewing that memory dump as text, he simply read through all of it for this string of hex– And thus did he find it, and lo he looked upon it, and saw that it was good... so he shared it around, like AIDS, except it's something you'd actually want.

But no one gives a shit anymore

Because Blu-ray won the format war faggots. Enjoy your useless key. In fact Blu-ray and HD-DVD use same encryption system called AACS, and HD-DVD being pwned means Blu-ray is pwned as well. Now that's how you can download high definition pr0ns. Next time you fap, don't forget to show some respect to those hackers.
