iTunes Cracked Again

Apparently the encryption used by iTunes is not too tough to crack, at least not for dedicated members of the Cult of Mac. According to Slashdot, version 4.2 was replaced by 4.5 just to replace a broken set of encryption algorithms. The updates themselves seem to be fairly buggy, and Neil Gaiman relates the update story for his households collection (!) of iPods on his blog. Of course, the new security was promptly cracked by craz.net, within 24 hours.

Anyway, if you are a pod-head, grab the reverse-engineered iTunes tunesbrowser while you can; it may be DMCA'ed away soon. I think it qualifies as a "software toy." The iTunes library for programmers also seems interesting, if indeed any Mac programmers are lurking out there in the blogosphere.
