The Denuvo digital rights management solution, which has been labelled as impervious, has been cracked.
According to a report by Ars Technica, hacker CONSPIR4CY has released a cracked version of Rise of the Tomb Raider – which is protected by Denuvo.
Denuvo works by creating a unique key for a game based on the hardware configuration of a purchaser’s machine.
The founder of Chinese cracking forum 3DM warned in January that there will be no more pirate games to play in two years if anti-piracy technology continues to progress, after facing difficulty in cracking Denuvo-protected games.
“There’s not much info on how [the Tomb Raider] crack works at the moment,” stated the report, adding that it was a victory for those seeking to crack PC games.
