"A Cost Analysis of Windows Vista Content Protection"
by Peter Gutmann
For your especial pleasure:
"Vista's content protection requires that devices (hardware and
software drivers) set so-called "tilt bits" if they detect anything
unusual. For example if there are unusual voltage fluctuations, maybe
some jitter on bus signals, a slightly funny return code from a
function call, a device register that doesn't contain quite the value
that was expected, or anything similar, a tilt bit gets set."
This message brought to you by the National Liquor Council. "We'll
give you a reason to drink."
