WMA DRM cracked - Again !

Yes thats true. A piece of software of just 220 KB in size , "FairUse4WM" has been able to strip the DRM from WMA files - albeit only files for which the user owns a license & works on Windows Media DRM 10 and 11. It has reportedly been able to work on files purchased from subscription based services like PlayForSure,Urge,Napster etc.

This is not exactly the first time it has been cracked - It was in 2005 , but Microsoft quickly patched it. It's be interesting to see how long Microsoft takes to patch this one up.
