Apple iBooks DRM Hacked

A posting on Mobileread.com is suggesting that Version 3.3 of Requiem by the hacker “Brahms” is capable of removing Apple’s DRM from iTunes and iBooks.  While the software has been capable of iTunes DRM removal for some time, this is the first time that it can also crack the iBooks format as well.

This type of hack does not bode well for Apple or those authors who are trying to make money from the Apple Book Store, as users would be able to crack the content and put it out on the internet for free viewing.  However, it is highly likely that a new DRM system will be pushed out in the next update of iTunes and iBooks, iBooks Author in order to block the current hack.
