Pirates have found a way to circumvent the 4K copy protection on Netflix, resulting in the first 4k/Ultra HD leak, reports Torrent Freak.
The leak in question is the first episode of Breaking Bad and amounts to a massive 17.73 GB of data.
Until now it was believed to be impossible to break the High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection (HDCP) version 2.2 or higher. However, despite this copy protection the first 4K Netflix leak just appeared online.
Netflix informed Torrent Freak that they are looking into the reported leak and the company will do its best to prevent similar breaches in the future.
“Piracy is a global problem. We, like others content providers, are actively working on ways to protect content featured on our site,” a Netflix spokesperson told the site.
