According to BBC technology reporter Jim Reed a UK company, Slysoft, has claimed to have cracked the anti piracy technology on Blu Ray discs. (BD+ technology). Interesting news given Sony developer’s claims in 2007 that it would be a decade before any hacker would crack the technology.

Slysoft claims the new version of its Any DVD program enables users to make “backup security copies” of high def movies. While SlySoft says it hacked the BD+ technology in November 2007 the company claims it has waited until now to plan a release of their product as they were awaiting the winner of the Blu Ray HD format war.

Sony has remained silent on the Slysoft claims although developers for the technology giant have previously stated that BD+ technology is designed to react to attempts made on its technology implying that the Slysoft solution may soon be unusable.
