Hulu Attempts Encryption

gebraset - April 1, 2009 08:53PM in Internet

Throughout the depths of the Internet, programs can be found and downloaded to parse different websites for certain information that they contain. Many people that do not even visit Hulu on a regular basis have been parsing the site for a while now, using various plug-in tools and applications that they manage to scour. The website is now taking some action, and is encrypting their HTML code, so when JavaScript decrypts it, it can not be read by anything but a standard everyday web browser. While this seems like a decent idea, it also seems that a man named Martin Millmore figured out how to get passed it, by figuring out the encrypted code Hulu used. After this finding, the website has not made any announcements on the findings, or what it plans to do next because of the workaround on its HTML encryption.
