I feel like most of the people saying they have been hacked are only paranoid. While most of the people who actually have been hacked do not notice it at all.

comment How does Silverlight protect the AES keys it gets from PlayReady?
Decode works fine with JavaScript atob('WE1...'). Binary strings starts wirh "XMR". Documentation mentions something about "PlayReady XMR" in Output Protection chapter. Have a look in this direction.

Can you post an example of the base64 key you got? Why can't you decode it?

@ShaulBehr I added some more text. Identity theft is possible and will still be possible. This database does prevent it in some cases but it also creates new threats to fear. You have to decided for you self what risks you like to take.

comment Android app using FTP
HTTP is open as FTP so everybody can see what you are doing, steal accounts and upload files. SSL normally cost money but you can get a free SSL certificate yourself. Maybe your hoster will add this for free.

comment How to uniquely identify users with the same external IP address?
HTTP headers can be easily be changed by the attack. Captchas are annoying. I would recommend light throttling.
