Death of DRM on PC platforms??

It finally comes to light as I predicted a couple of months back that trusted zone memory would be up for grabs, see:

It has taken the white hats a couple of months ( maybe a little longer as it was known about before we , the great unwashed, got to know about it), Historically they have always trailed the black hats in exploit finding. though maybe not so far behind now there are bug bounties.

All stored key protection schemes are now totally insecure. By this I mean just about every DRM scheme which is in place up to now. I reiterate, watch the sue-balls fly from the fallout of this.
