Here are two reports of a vulnerability in MS eBook reader:
An anonymous programmer has found a way to decrypt
Microsoft Reader e-books, spurring digital-rights debate.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- In another potential blow to online publishing, a
U.S. programmer says he has developed software that defeats the most
advanced encryption features of Microsoft's Reader, a software
program for distributing electronic books.
It is very interesting that these vulnerabilities in Digital
Rights Management (DRM )software can no longer be released
through the normal security channels due to possible risks.
These and soon possibly other vulnerabilities cannot be released
due to possible DMCA violations. Therefore, Authors cannot fully trust
these software packages as they are not being reviewed by the
security community properly.
