    hey there, i recently bought a cd of ebay containing the works of an
    auther. This file is an .nfo file and is about 107 mb. Every time i
    try to copy, or print a few pages from this document, i get a mesege
    saying this: "Insufficeint Security to perform this operation". I
    have
    a really hard time reading things of my computer screen, and usually
    prefer to print of documents. So i have tried everything within my
    knowledge and ability to do so. I have tried to convert it to
    different formats, but the characters become unreadble. I have
    attempted to use another program to open and try to print the pages,
    but there does not seem to be any such program that can open such a
    large file. The program im using is called Folio Views. Any help
    would
    be much appreciated.

    You might be better asking a group which specialises in
    hacking rather than one with a focus in keeping things secure.

    Don't you mean "cracking"?

    Security is related to breaking it, so he actually is in the right
    group. However, the problem is totally uninteresting. There is a file,
    which the author doesn't want anybody to copy, print or alter, and he
    achieves this using an own (probably insecure) format, for which he
    writes a special program.

    From the fact that this CGI program has been written in Haskell, it
    follows naturally that this CGI program is perfectly secure.

    The security of software-implemented DRM is zero, by definition. That's why

    The security of hardware-implemented DRM isn't better either. Sooner or
    later both are broken.
