Came across this excellent piece of investigative journalism in the Fin Review - all about IRDETO and NDS hacking, Foxtel and Austar and News Limiteds involvement in the whole thing.

Very eye opening - although I long suspect we all thought most of the hacking was inside jobs - and indeed its well known the NDS was hacking IRDETO cards in the early 2000's

its a long read, but well worth it

Seems like News Corp picked the perfect time to sell NDS to Cisco a week ago.
