The funny story of the latest AACS key leak
Ed Felton of Freedom To Tinker satirized the idea of "protecting" a number with his 128 bit number generator, which issued unique numbers to all who asked for one. The comment section became a stream of people threatening legal action if anyone else published their number, but in amongst the smart-assery was a hidden gem:
45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B2
What are the odds that this is the new processing key?
(Hint for arnezami: uv=00000047)
Amezami is the name of the hacker who originally leaked the first key and, as it turns out, that is the next compromised key in the AACS chain. The odds that Felton's toy picked that number at random are pretty slim so, who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
