THE iTunes Store It's a wall: Movies and series sold or rented there are protected by a DRM stack, so it's essentially impossible to copy and distribute them on the Internet. Well, it seems that this barrier has finally been broken.
A 4K torrent of the movie Aquaman came up this week in the internet recipes, and the title of the release The name given to the torrent file with its basic information implies that the file was extracted from the iTunes Store. If the hypothesis is confirmed, this is the first time a film has been cast directly from Ma's store. (Correo: As pointed out in the comments, the leak (supposedly) is the first of a 4K file from the iTunes Store. Poor quality files can be ripped through the store, albeit with difficulty).
As informed the site TorrentFreak, the file has a title that suggests its “iTunesian” origins: Aquaman.2018.2160p.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.HDR.HEVC-MOMA. The inscription “WEB-DL” indicates a file that was extracted directly from a digital streaming or selling content such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video; "Aquaman", however, is not yet available on any of these platforms just in the iTunes Store at all.
No one yet knows, however, how the leaker MOMA managed to bypass the iTunes Store DRM and get the file for sharing. It is well known that iTunes Store 4K content is accessible only by Apple TV, so if there is any breach in Ma's protection system, it is in the tvOS.
After the torrent of AquamanIt is worth noting that two other 4K torrents of movies available only from the iTunes Store have already appeared; they are “Spider-Man: Reverse Spider” and “Could You Forgive Me?”. This therefore indicates that the leaker continues to take advantage of whatever breach has been found in the Apple system.
Ma, of course, has not commented on the case but must be investigating everything under the hood. We will look out for the next chapters of this story.
