Windows iTunes copy-protection cracked

MacworldUK-Apple's success in the nascent digital music market has justified its service as a potential target for crackers and hackers.

New software called QTFairUse appeared online last week. The software is capable of evading the anticopying technology that protects tracks sold through Apple's service – but only on Windows.

QTFairUse has been developed by Jon Johansen, a cracker that made a name for himself for figuring a way to break the copy-protection technology found on DVDs.
