HDCP Exploit Released And Is Capable Of Decrypting 1080p Video In Real-time

The HDCP exploit that surfaced recently has given birth to a new open-source software created by Rob Johnson, allowing users to be able to decrypt HDCP videos. The software will require a relatively powerful system, and the the developer claims that a high-end, multi-core 64-bit CPU will be able to decrypt 30FPS, 1080p content using two cores and about 1.6GB of RAM. Such a move would allow interested parties to create devices that support HDCP without having to pay for a licensing agreement, something that Intel probably won’t be too happy about, and has already threatened to sue anyone who makes an exploit readily available.
