Blu-ray Movies Ripped Using PS3

Benjamin Nied - Dec 4, 2006

Well that didn’t take long. Less than three weeks after its debut in the US and Canada, our first group of hackers have discovered a way to rip Blu-ray movie discs to their PlayStation 3’s hard drive using Yellow Dog Linux 5.0, which is the first step to completely defeating the Blu-ray’s “improved” security features. Right now, the hackers have only figured out how to extract the disc’s information; someone still needs to figure out how to burn these images back to disc. So the ongoing battle between hackers and multimedia providers continues on, with the hackers making another monumental leap. And at this rate, it won’t be long before Blu-ray’s secrets are completely unlocked.
