    Well, if there is an exploit that makes it easy to pirate movies, doesn't one think that the exploit can go the other way so that the pirates can exploit you or your machine? Totally possible in my book.
    I really hate Chrome, everytime I give this damn browser a chance and install it, someone comes along and opens a big, wide gaping hole in it, yet people swear by it, why? because it's fast? No thanks, I'll sacrifice speed over security.

    Google can keep their crap.

    Why not check chrome's internet cache folder? A decrypted version of the video might be there. ;)

    That's right... Nobody.

    Except the person who wrote the article linked to in the opening post.

    All the clues you need are there. ;)
