Default First Ripped Ultra HD Blu-ray Hits Pirate Sites

In what could be a real breakthrough, the first, apparently ripped Ultra HD Blu-ray disc has been uploaded online.

While the format's name contains the "Blu-ray" moniker, Ultra HD Blu-ray discs are in fact a new disc format that uses a non backwards compatible disc format and an updated copy protection regime. These 4K discs are protected by AACS 2.0, which unlike the earlier version of AACS used for standard Blu-ray discs, has not yet been cracked.

Perhaps until now, that is.

The first Ultra HD Blu-ray that may have been cracked is not a title that you would have expected. The distinction goes to the 2013 animated film 'The Smurfs 2', and both BitTorrent trackers UltraHDclub and IPT claimed the release as an exclusive.

The 2160p UHD Blu-ray rip in HEVC video format with Dolby Atmos 7.1 surround sound is at a whopping 53.30 GB in size, and with few seeders around currently, the download will likely spend a long time in people's download queues.

However, the authenticity of the file, which was first questioned, has since been confirmed by TorrentFreak, suggesting some kind of breakthrough has occurred in the cracking of AACS 2.0.

Whether this turns out to be true will be easily proven. If a flood of Ultra HD Blu-ray rips makes it to the usual BitTorrent hangouts in the near future, then it's once again a big blow to Hollywood's latest efforts to protect their movies.
