Hacking group close to breaking gaming industry’s copy protection software ‘Denuvo’
Last month we had reported a news that pirates and hackers are finding it difficult to crack the copy protection software, Denuvo. At that time, the premier game hacking group, 3DM had stated that it was unable to crack open-world explosion-fest Just Cause 3 despite coming close. In a seeming volte-face, Chinese hacking group 3DM has announced that it is close to breaking Denuvo.
Denuvo, is an anti-tamper technology developed by the Austrian company Denuvo Software Solutions GmbH. Denuvo is the copyright protection of choice for the gaming industry as it is designed to work by protecting existing DRM solutions, such as Origin Online Access and the Steam license management system. Denuvo Anti-Tamper “continuously encrypts and decrypts itself, making it impossible to crack any Denuvo protected game according to the company.
“3DM will soon announce that we have a solution to the latest Denuvo encryption used on games including ‘FIFA 16’, ‘Just Cause 3’, and ‘Tomb Raider: The Rise'[Rise of the Tomb Raider],” says 3DM leader Bird Sister according to Torrentfreak.
“We [made this announcement] because a lot of players believe we have abandoned cracking due to technical problems, but we will prove it is not the case,” Bird Sister continues. “We have not yet been stumped [by protection measures].”
3DM hand earlier announced that it was taking a year’s break however this latest statement from Bird Sister makes us believe otherwise.
“Recently, many people have asked about cracks for ‘Just Cause 3?, so here is a centralised answer to this question. The last stage is too difficult and Jun [cracking guy] nearly gave up, but last Wednesday I encouraged him to continue,” Bird Sister had said a month ago, “I still believe that this game can be compromised. But according to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world,” she added.
