    Default News About Securom V5 and how it Protects

    I think this is known:

    Sony DADC has just finished their development on SecuROM v5 which will have a protection against emulation software:
    The main upgrade is a new protection shield against virtual drive emulation. As you are probably aware, emulators are useful tools for making back-up copies of legally purchased original discs. Nevertheless, they can also be used to illegally use your software by emulating a disc copy or a virtual drive.
    With this new version, SecuROM stays ahead of the competition with a brand new anti-emulator shield that defeats emulation software such as: Alcohol 120%, BlindWrite, Daemon Tools, ******** & CloneCD.

    But this not at all:

    Funtion:
    Ok. It will install a driver on your PC without asking you.
    So it can dedect the emulating software while starting.
    Temporary theres only one option to get a function Copy.
    You have to fix the main executable of the game (exe and/or dll)
    so the protection installation dosent start.

    Second Option for BackUp is:
    The Driver wich is been installed would be made "blind" against
    the emulation software. What I mean is, that on the new DaemonTools
    a "shield" wich defets the dedection, must be programmed.

    Latest dtools and alcohol already fix this blacklist. Most securom blacklists have been against the driver name. But now you can change the driver name during install of dtools/alc.
