A next-generation DVD security group has responded to hack attacks that allow unfettered access to Blu-Ray and HD-DVD content by pulling the encryption keys of PC applications associated with the attack.

The move makes it impossible to play newly released high-definition movies via versions of playback software, including versions of Intervideo WinDVD 8.

WinDVD 8 users need to update their software, closing the security hole and obtaining fresh encryption keys in the process.

It'll always be the case. People stealing what isn't theirs.
The fact that they are trying to prevent it (DVD copying) is kinda dumb in itself, money waisted. Because the odds one coder against 1000 hackers/exploiters, your odds are bad to try and prevent them, but I guess you might as well try.
