Hackers break the PSP encryption

Sony's PSP is not yet launched in India or in UK but the hackers in US have worked out how to break the encryption on Sony’s Universal Media Discs (UMD) used for its PSP handheld console. Hackers have figured out a way to bypass the encryption process and extract files from the UMDs but there is no way to play the games extracted from those discs. Details were posted on a PlayStation fan site, along with lists showing all the files pulled off the game discs for "Ridge Racers," "Wipeout Pure" and "Vampire Chronicles."
