Xbox 360 copy protection cracks

Xbox 360 copy protection cracks

"Hackers have taken the first step towards breaking the anti-piracy system on Microsoft's Xbox 360 game console.

A group of crackers called Team PI Coder says it has discovered the basic workings of the console's file system.

The information has helped the group dig out the raw data from the console for 13 Xbox 360 games.

In response Microsoft said its console had several security systems in place that would prevent pirated games being played on it.

Starting point

Information about the work of Team PI Coder was posted to a Dutch piracy site along with the raw data from the games. There was also links to a small program the group produced that helps to extract the data.

In the text file with the extracted data, the PI Coders admit that not much can be done with the data.

"You can't run these dumps yet, but you will be able to sooner or later," reads the information file." [more]
