Why Won’t Bill O’Reilly Die?

27 06 2007

Man, a teenager owns his ass and he still won’t just disappear.

I realize this is all over the net now, but its till makes me want to put the “I Hate Bill O’Reilly” page back up… there I just did it.

Watch:

That was almost as disgusting a display of the stereotypical “ugly-American”, as the “Paris Hilton gets out of jail” fiasco. Thank god for K.O.!!

Bill is such an ass. I’m gonna see if I can drum up some code to make a hand come out of Bill’s monitor and slap him like a bitch every time he tries to open his mouth. 🙂

In the meantime, we will have to rely on Olberman to be our resounding voice of disdain for Billdo and all that keep him on the air.





How To Hack A Voting Machine In 60 SECONDS!!!! (VIDEO)

13 06 2007

This vid posted on youtube by stemcomputerssuck, shows you how to replace the ROM (aka Read Only Memory) of a voting machine, like the ones you are going to use to vote against the GOP reign of terror. This isn’t the first hack we’ve seen for voting machines, but its the first I’ve seen done in 60 (SIXTY) FRIGGIN SECONDS!!!

NOTE: One commenter said that you could speed the physical hack up with an electric screw driver. I agree, as long as you keep everything grounded to avoid any electrostatic shocks, it could be done even faster!!

Here’s the little bit of description that stemcomputerssuck left with the vid:

A detailed technical analysis of this e-voting machine can be found on http://www.wijvertrouwenstemcomputers…

But don’t worry, you’re perfectly safe. We have top men working on becoming completely apathetic towards US politics as I type!!

On, “45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B2”: *THE* HD Key To Rule Them All?

31 05 2007

So, this key, the one in the title, appears to be the key to rule all hd dvd keys.  Or is it?  It was actually posted may 23rd on Freedom To Tinker in a comment?!?!?  Yeah, you can use it as the key to decrypt alot of new HD discs but will it end  any need to work further on cracking AACS craptastic codes?  (Note this is the new HD key, not the one that was widely published and all fuxxored on d!gg.)

My only other source is this forum: DOOM9

Moving on, because this key was supposedly found one day after it was “put into action” by the powers that be, I’m gonna explore how the key was so rapidly extracted.

First, I’m gonna guess, just for shits and giggles.  Perhapse someone simply brute forced a prefab “wordlist” or 16 value hex number sets?  Since I refuse to go HD (either format) I have no way of really knowing if this is even plausible, cause I can’t test it out myself.  I also don’t have an XBOX 360 with the external HD-DVD drive handy to experiment with either.  So its fair to say that my first inclination is a pure shot in the dark… or is it? (see arnezami’s method of finding a Volume ID later on in the post)

Second, I’ll ask Google.  Well … so far its not an answer but it appears that someone bought this domain: http://455fe10422ca29c4933f95052b792ab2.com/ …which is funny as hell cause there is no content, its just pure net real estate hilariousness.

But lets dig deeper, shall we?  Lets plug this hint “uv=00000047”, from the comment by BtCB, into Google. (pause for effect)

Okey dokey, now we are in business.  It would appear that a curios fellow who goes by the name arnezami over at DOOM9 FORUMS has some simple instructions on how to grab a Volume ID for HD-DVD.  And it follows:

Finding the Volume ID

How did I find the Volume ID?

There are essentially two ways (now). I used the USB sniffer (with the xbox 360 HD DVD) because I knew I didn’t have to bother with the (possibly obscured/wiped) memory of the software player.

  1. Download USB sniffer 1.8 then unzip and start it.
  2. Select the “USB Mass Storage Device” (I use the xbox 360 HD DVD drive) and click install.
  3. Unplug the HD DVD drive (the usb cable) and replug it again. It will be recognized by windows and the sniffer starts logging.
  4. Insert the Disc into the drive while the sniffer is.. well sniffing. Then start WinDVD and immediatly quit when the video (even the first black screen) starts. Then click ‘Close’ on the sniffer.
  5. You now have a huge log file (60+ MB or something). Open it in WinHex (pressing F7 for ascii only) and search for the ascii string (not hex search!) “00000000: 00 22 00 00” including the spaces (but excluding the quotes of course ).
  6. There was only one occurence of this in the whole file. So it has to be the Volume ID. Tata!

Btw: I used WinDVD but the above should also work for other players.

A different method (but less reliable I think) is to use WinDVD’s memdump.

  1. Open WinDVD’s memdump in WinHex
  2. Hex search (with WinHex) for 002200004000 or alternatively 0020202020200000. **
  3. There you will (usally) find the Volume ID. But I’m not sure this will always work. There may be more than one occurance. You can check if the last 16 bytes (of the 36 beginning with 0022) are random since that would have to be the MAC. If its not random you haven’t found it yet so you should go on searching until you do.

arnezami

PS. Almost forgot: make sure you remove the last 16 bytes from the Volume ID log (which is the MAC) like I did in my first post. This is because in theory they might be able to track down your drive with that part… (you don’t want that). The Volume ID itself is for everybody the same (with the same movie) so that won’t reveal anything about yourself .

Seems like a plan, but if you look further you can just use these little apps posted in the same forums by a person named ape:

hddvd_vukeyfinder.zip and for Blu Ray use bdkeyfinder.zip

But wait there’s more…

Well here is something to play with.

fetchvid.exe

For me it works with WinDVD (which is the most sensitive I believe) and the Xbox 360 HD DVD. My sweet spot is a time value between 390 and 420. I usually set it at 410 which works perfectly (btw time is measured in nr of AGID retrieval attempts counted from the moment the player accesses the drive).

Just try it and play with it a bit.

Remember: this program does not use the private key. It just “watches” the drive carefully and then pretends to be the software player.

It works for HD DVD only atm.

arnezami

PS. This is experimental programming. There could be bugs in it.

And that is all she wrote folks.  Yes this is the latest key to rule them all for AACS DRM craptakery and that was a little peek into how it was uncovered.  There should be HUGE applause for anrezami et all for all the hard work they did.  Just reading everything really gave me a pretty solid grasp of how AACS Encryption/DRM works.  Congrats to all the peeps at DOOM9 who worked very hard on getting all this info together.  All credit goes to them.

Of course SOMEBODY had to make some money off of all arnezami, BtCB and the rest of DOOM9’s hard work, and it looks like slysoft has borrowed arnezami and friends cracking methods to offer AnyDVD HD that will rip allmost any HD DVD or Blu Ray Disc without you having to do a damn thing.  I wonder if at least arnezami is getting a cut of the profits?  One lives in hope.

Anyhew none of this is native to linux but you can probably run most of it in WINE or convert the c++ aps to python.  Since AnyDVD doesn’t REALLY rip any HD disc then you might even consider just using the methods used by arnezami and the apps he and his friends over at DOOM9 created.

I made a little software pack for everyone so you don’t have to download everything seperately, except the slysoft app of course: HDandBDcrakingFiles.rar

Big Ups To All That Showed Big Hollywood That DRM is Useless.

Keep information free,

As it turns out you  don’t need to do a damn thing because according to

Latest AACS Revision Defeated A Week Before Release via ArsTechnica

17 05 2007

Just FYI via ArsTechnica:

Despite the best efforts of the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) Licensing Administration (AACS LA), content pirates remain one step ahead. A new volume key used by high-def films scheduled for release next week has already been cracked. The previous AACS volume key was invalidated by AACS LA after it was exposed and broadly disseminated earlier this month. The latest beta release of SlySoft’s AnyDVD HD program can apparently be used to rip HD DVD discs that use AACS version 3. Although these won’t hit store shelves until the May 22, pirates have already successfully tested SlySoft’s program with early release previews of the Matrix trilogy.

READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE

Man AACS, CSS the iTunes DRM what’s next?  It seems to me that DRM is pretty much worthless, but it could just be me imagining things again.  Maybe all you big smart executives should come up with an “uncrackable” DRM that … oh wait that was supposed to be what AACS was, guess that’s out the window.  Well I guess you guys are SOL unless you start thinking of a way to nix DRM and move on, sorry 😉

kthxbye





ThePirateBay.org: Worlds Largest BitTorrent Tracker Hacked!!

13 05 2007

The Pirate Bay was hacked!! As you can read in the excerpt from their blog, the user database was copied via a security hole in in the blog itself.

Get the word straight from the horses mouth:

SOURCE: TBP Hacked

User data stolen but not unsecuredHi, we have some sad news, but don’t be alarmed…

Some people (and yes, we know who) found a security hole on our web site (in fact, actually in this blog).

They have got a copy of the user database. That is, your username and passwords. But, the passwords are stored encrypted, so it’s not a big deal, but it’s still very sad that it’s out there. All e-mails are for instance encrypted as well, they will most likely not be able to decrypt them either (they are _very_ encrypted).

We encourage all our users to change passwords as soon as possible – and if you have the same password on the bay as other places, you should update them as well.

Sorry for the mess, but we are all human and we miss something sometimes.

So it looks like all is not lost.

However, as a note of caution, whenever you sign up for any web based service don’t use information that can be linked to who you are in meatspace.

Some simple tricks to keep you seperate from U are: Keep at least 10 disposable, as in you can delete it and not care that it got deleted, email accounts all based on fake information. Also, don’t use a static IP address. To keep you IP anonymous, try using JAP or TOR or at least a anonymous proxy. Most importantly, always scan downloads for viri and other assorted malware BEFORE you open them and make sure the md5 sig hashes check out. You can also use a Virtual Machine as a secure way to test out software before loading anything on your real system. A simple way to do this is to use Sandboxie which will set up a secure environment for you.

Keep hacking, but be as secure as possible.

Remember, its the little human errors that cause security holes to be left open and exploited so try not to be human 😉





(FAKE) HARRY POTTER LEAKED: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows PDF LEAKED!!! (UPDATED FAKE)

9 05 2007

Howdy yall, as it turns out and as I suspected this was a false alarm/bogus/ghey/FAKE. Its a “Fan Novel” like the ones recently listed on buzzfeed. Sorry for the bother.The last Harry Potter book appears to have been leaked*. Its a PDF and around 650 pages long.

Download it here: Harry_Potter_and_the_deathly_hallows.zip

Alternate Download Site: http://www.MegaShare.com/192099

I zipped the copy that was emailed to me, so its easier to download. The file is about 1.8mb so it may take a minute or two to download unless you use a download manager.

I’ll keep you updated on the particulars of this HUGE leak. I bet J.K Rowling is pissed. If this leak is in fact real.

NOTE: There are alot of “Larry Pooter” books flying around china. People actually write fake Harry Potter books and sell them as pirated copies, but they aren’t really pirated, they’re trademark and copywrite infringements.

* This post, and the download contained in it, are products of investigative journalism and therefore covered by law as legal.

**UPDATED UPDATE**

The following post (HARRY POTTER LEAK UPDATE: Pictures Of Every Page) in the latest update  on this post, was issued a DMCA takedown notice, and TheMostBoringBlogInTheWorld has fully complied.  (I knew it was a bad idea to post links to the REAL HP7 leak. FYI – It consists of a buttload of pix of each page of the brand new book.)  TMBBITW is dedicated to distributing information that NEEDS to be free, not handing out links to pirated works of any kind.

In fact, we prefer that ALL links to DL apps or information, be under free licences or “freeware” or preferably “open source”.  That is why we say “GO LINUX” instead of bothering with a crap OS like VISTA.  A stagnant relic full of crapware and bugs.  We prize innovation of information, not theft.
We haven’t changed our policies at all here, we are adamant about keeping the public informed about the wonders and the dangers of hacking and pretty much everything else on the net.  However, we won’t make the mistake of posting links to

Keep on hacking folks!
