It's been a week now yet every time I go to the Funimation site the message about the video portal being down for maintenance is still there.

Surely they must have fixed the problems by now?


I imagine it will take a while to get a pretty good security system in place to prevent more leaks.

Their video portal is back. =)


Yay ^^ still haven't added episode 10 yet, hopefully they will soon

It seems they fixed the security issues. I have a slow connection so I may be mistaken but I think the new video player doesn't cache the entire episode in the hard disk. I press pause and then press play after almost 15 minutes, it ends up buffering again in 5-10 seconds.

What i gathered is that their site was put together with gum and ducktape.
Good for them, that they are now fixing that.

They should use the same method as Viz. Giving files random names and using a PHP script that outputs an XML file with filename info only if the region and time is correct.

I use a Windows Apache server so no chmod and I have no idea how to use .htaccess so I XOR the files and get a script to deXOR it when conditions are met.

Also: New Security + Large Files + Streaming = Resource Drain

Haha,

We know that many of you have questions about what specific technical changes will be taking place but following what we have experienced this week, we will be keeping that information confidential. I can tell you that we are enhancing our security and will be applying the newest technology to protect our files.


Yeah. chmod and/or simply not uploading the file (or at least moving it to the live dir) until you want it to go live is the newest technology.

I've used a backend dir I upload files to that are then moved to the live dir at midnight on my site for as long as it's existed in its current form. Was a base feature I deemed necessary. Nobody can see or access the backend dir so I can upload files weeks or months in advance and they're perfectly safe. Something that simple is all Funi needed to do.

Seems fair enough, they seemed to learn from their major mistakes(uploading the episodes days early), I will wait and see, Funimation is on the three strikes warning right now.

Well at least they realize what they need to do to keep this from happening again. Even if it is somehow leaked again, at least it will be after it's aired in Japan.

I just love the smell of FAIL in the morning!

Also, apparently the One Piece video was stolen by a simple URL change to redirect the user to the new episode. Hardly a hacker's task at all...

Funimation hasn't lost any licenses, they still have the license to One Piece. They just aren't streaming it online.

Well they seem to be updating it for what it is worth, you can't get on the video player right now, must likely(at least I hope so) adding security before Saturday so they can bring back One Piece(I hope Toei is forcing Funimation to add security at least)

Jun 5, 2009 8:12 AM by mitamaking

Illegal or not, its just too easy to access their videos, so I don't think there is any excuse for Funimation. The server where they store videos is totally not secure and I am pretty sure they have been aware of the issue for at least a few weeks now.

Jun 5, 2009 7:51 AM by madaodono

I heard that Phantom has been being leaked ever since Funi added it to their site. I think that was during episode 5 or 6.

If it is truly unsecured even I might have to agree with kuroshiroi, however, if there was any manipulation of the data to retrieve the file other then what is the intended purpose, it is a hack to some degree or at least I would think so. If I could just go to that page and there it is, well then FUNimation would be a bigger idiot then I would have expected.
To download One Piece 403 and Phantom 10 all you had to do was use this standard URL
http://video.funimation.com/FLV/FUN_[ANIME_TITLE]_[EP#]_JPN_640X360.flv
and replace [ANIME_TITLE] with things like PHANTOM and the [EP#] with 10. They have since added random junk at the end of the filename and/or removed the episodes but the links weren't secured with anything else. They weren't region blocked, for instance, and not chmodded.
Basically, they uploaded episodes hours and even days before the actual airing and didn't secure them in any meaningful way.

tl;dr: Downloading from a predictable URL is not hacking.
