BackupBluray – Back up Blu-ray Disc utility

BackupBluray – Back up Blu-ray Disc utility

The person (muslix64) behind the famous BackupHDDVD utility and indirectly responsible for the subsequent appearance of HD DVD torrents is at it again, this time with his sights set on the Blu-ray Disc format. A new utility has just been released in a very early Alpha stage, aptly dubbed “BackupBluray“. This BackupBluray tool is designed to help backup Blu-ray (BD-ROM) movies. The early version of this utility only supports the decryption of Blu-ray discs whose CPS unit key is known. Support for decryption via a Volume Unique key will most likely be added in the near future as development continues. At this point, a stable version of the tool is not yet available for mass distribution. The initial tool has already proven successful though, as there has already been one confirmed report of a successful Blu-ray Disc backup. If the BackupHDDVD tool history is any indication as to where BackupBluray will end up, we can expect to see the source code released to the public along with a SourceForge.net project opened.


BackupBlurayThe first Blu-ray Disc movie to fall victim to a backup and decryption appears to have been Lord Of War, from Lion’s Gate Films. After receiving BD-ROM video files and a memory dump, muslix64 was able to successfully decrypt the content. A powerful crypto attack was used to analyze the memory dump obtained from a Blu-ray Disc software player (such as WinDVD or PowerDVD). The crypto attack helped to identify the encryption keys that are needed for decrypting the video files. After the initial experiment was a success, muslix64 released the alpha version of BackupBluray. Soon thereafter, another Doom9 forum user reported a successful Blu-ray disc backup.

    Blu-ray Now Cracked, and That Makes Two…

    Movie studios, start your attorneys, because muslix64, the guy who cracked HD DVD with his BackupHDDVD utility has done it again. His next Pandora’s box is called BackupBluray. It’s not perfect yet, because the first iteration can only crack backup…..

    Nice to see Gizmodo linking back here. :)
    BackupBluray technically did not “crack” AACS, encryption keys were just extracted from memory and the video files were then decrypted using publicly available information.

    […] Well, maybe not just yet, as the BackupBluray utility is just in Alpha stage, it will only decrypt Blu-ray discs whose CPS unit key known, but one user, at least, has confirmed he has successfully ripped an entire movie, or has posted that he has, I didn’t see any proof, but I haven’t finished reading the whole thread yet. Muslix64, the same guy who created BackupHDDVD to allow people to backup their HD DVD’s, has once again developed a program to copy the supposedly unbreakable DRM, this time on Blu-ray DVD’s, BackupBluray is it’s name, and while it can only copy discs whose key’s are known, he said full decryption will be added soon.

    […] BackupBluray results video has been posted online. The Doom9 forum user Janvitos filmed a video of a BD-R Blu-ray backup disc playing on his LG Blu-ray PC drive. It appears to be a Sony BD-R disc, but I can not be certain due to the low resolution. He made the BD-R disc using files extracted with the BackupBluray utility. The “victim” movie that was backed up and played from a BD-R disc is “Corpse Bride” from the Warner Brothers studio. I have embedded the video below if you’re interested in viewing the process. Hopefully it does not get removed from YouTube. […]

    […] HDTVBlogger is reporting that the first full Blu-ray Disc rip released as a torrent has just appeared on HDBits.org, a private torrent tracking website. The first Blu-ray rip “victim” to make an appearance is Ice Age 2: Meltdown, with a massive 22GB file size. With the release of the BackupBluray utility, we knew it was just a matter of time before Blu-ray rips started to appear on torrent trackers and now here they are, right along side HD DVD rips. I expect that more and more Blu-ray rips will soon make their way on to a variety torrent trackers, both private and public. […]

    […] A user over on the PS3NEWS forums has figured out how to rip, convert and playback Blu-ray movies straight from a PS3 hard drive. The process involves booting into Linux on your PS3, running BackupBluray, using a file splitter and then re-encoding the video/audio to another format that can be played back in the VLC media player. Looking at these steps, it does not appear to be the easiest process in the world. But hey, if you want to avoid using the handy dandy built in PS3 Blu-ray drive, this might be for you! I don’t really see it being a highly sought after function, especially since the PS3 hard drives are limited in size (40GB or 60GB) and the physical Blu-ray disc playback functionality is already available on the console. External hard drives can also be used though, as noted by the author of the guide. […]
