"This is the source code
for the CSS descrambling algorithm that was posted anonymously to the LiViD mailing list in October 1999. The C code was supposedly written by someone who disassembled a software DVD player to uncover the descrambling algorithm. It was this posting that led Frank Stevenson to conduct his analysis of the CSS encryption scheme. The code was subsequently included in an unsealed (whoops!
) legal filing
by John Hoy, president of the DVD-CCA, in the California trade secret lawsuit against Andrew McLaughlin and 92 other defendants. Guess it's not a trade secret anymore. More about that here
