Reports have been circulating of yet another version of DeCSS, the banned DVD decrypting code that we're not allowed to publish or link to.
This most recent version appears on Dr. David Touretzky's "Gallery of CSS Descramblers" page, which also includes everything from the original source code to plain English to a DeCSS haiku. The new version, entitled qrpff.pl (written in Perl), is 526 bytes in size. A slighter larger version named qrpff-fast.pl (531 bytes) "is actually fast enough to use to watch a movie" according to Touretzky. Both were written by Keith Winstein and Marc Horowitz, programmers from MIT. Neither is taken from the exact DeCSS code that was the focal point for all of the controversy. However, since it accomplishes the same thing, it can, according to the courts, be referred to as DeCSS.
A five byte title key has to be entered in order for either of these programs to work. This additional step may actually be enough for this not to be considered a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We can't afford to take chances though due to the court ruling against us. So we cannot reproduce this code here nor can we link to Touretzky's site which contains this code. We will, however, tell you the address without providing a link.
Dr. Touretzky's gallery (including the new programs) can be found at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/DeCSS/Gallery/.
