Any guesses as to why only the PDF decryption tool and not the EPUB tool? Especially what with the actual break and all being extracting the key. Given the key and the unpublished V=3 PDF key-generation algorithm, PDF decryption is a simple matter of programming to a spec.

In any case, I'll be arranging a different way of hosting these tools.

  3. Hi i♥cabbages-
    I'm a law student participating in a clinical program which seeks to provide free legal advice and services to tech entrepreneurs, new media startups, and people who create disruptive technology.
    If you'd like to discuss any legal questions or issues you might encounter, please contact me (possibly by responding to this comment) and we'll try to work out some way for you to contact me without broadcasting either of our e-mail addresses & identities to the world.

    Good Luck!

  4. I understand why you might be bitter about having a drm take down notice. But this pales in comparison as to what is happening to bloggers that talk about the situation in mexico; martial law, plans of us to annex it.

    Read this; http://chrysler5thavenue.blogspot.com/2009/03/breaking-news-usa-annexing-mexico.html

    Then check it in 2 hours, it will probably be gone. Go censorship and media blackouts.

  5. @kyrio I may be overly paranoid, but I'm attempting to prevent Adobe from discovering my identity. Bittorrent unfortunately provides no anonymity unless I e.g. seeded through TOR, which doesn't seem exactly brilliant. Other distribution channels such as freenet significantly limit accessibility. Anyway, still working on what I see as a viable solution.

  8. No, I meant give me the files to make the torrent. I've already grabbed your links (and the information contained within them), I'll probably make some RapidShares and torrents later, and link them off my post. My AIM username is the last bit of the URL attached to my posting name, for future reference.
