Yes, after reading the documentation again i've found that it generates a
key to decrypt the disc. So boys & girls. CSS has been cracked.
Funny, it greets the Linux CSS authentication code.

So... thoughts?

No idea, it says that a linux and nt version will follow, but says nothing
about sources... wow having the linux version with source code just blows
me away! : ). I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.

Oh, why's that?

The css algorithm itself isn't illegal....

(as far as I know, excuse me if I'm wrong)

In your dreams buddy. Didn't you see who released it?
DoD. They're never going to release the source.
But don't worry, a friend of mine has made an app like
DoD's (and I know that for a fact, the source is on my
hd right now :). Anyway, he said he is probably going to
release the source to the linux community soon.

Have a nice day everybody.
