2 May, 2004

In less than 24 hours of the release of iTunes 4.5, a 20 year old student, crazney, in Melbourne University (Melbourne, Australia) announced that he has it successfully reverse-engineered.

Apple's new iTunes 4.5, which deliberately broke the 4.2 authentication scheme, which had been successfully reverse-engineered.

It certainly isn't a good thing.
