    Default Microsoft’s DRM Protection hacked.

    TorrentFreak is reporting that a hack1ng group going by the name of CODEX has been able to breach five layers of DRM protection that are found in the Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection, which was, until now, believed to be uncrackable. Those five layers are MSStore, UWP, EAppX, XBLive, and Arxan, with that last one being an anti-tamper system in and of itself.
    In release notes for the cracked game, the hackers note that this is the first release of a UWP title, making this a day that Microsoft no doubt hoped would never arrive.
    This is the first scene release of a UWP (Universal Windows Platform) game. Therefore we would like to point out that it will of course only work on Windows 10. This particular game requires Windows 10 version 1607 or newer.
    At this point, the question has to be whether this exploit is specific to Zoo Tycoon or whether it will work on all other games that are available via the Windows Store. If that is the case, then we can expect a raft of new releases to become available via the usual pirate sources. The ball is now firmly in Microsoft’s court.

    Will be interesting to see how this pans out. Also read the same elsewhere. CODEX are a well known group of crackers ....

    Yeah Codex are putting out some good stuff at the moment, always nice to see some DRM cracked
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    I wonder if this will lead to MS closing the dev mode to new registrations as I assume that would be the easiest method for any potential DRM abuse on the Xbox One ?!?!?

    wonder if it's the same Codex that was around in the Amiga days ?

    unlikely i suppose considering it was over 25 years ago
