Zune DRM bypass

Dec 4, 2006

With something so deeply DRM infested as Zune it's enevitable that there's holes in the DRM armor, but I'm still surprised that you just have to rename files to end with .jpg and you can freely share content without DRM. Easy.

There's something inherently stupid in relying on filename extensions to get the filetype, and Microsoft has been bitten by it so often it's not funny anymore. And as usual they're relying on it in so many places that it's impossible for them to back out, so now they'll start adding workaround upon workaround to Zune too, each workaround adding more goo to the code and more security problems. Business as usual for Microsoft and their customers.
