Equation Group’s Malware
By now I hope everyone is aware of this fact that no hard drive is safe and formatting will not wipe this extremely complex firmware malware. If you aren’t aware - please read up on it.
Documentation is found here:
So when can I expect a firmware update for all of my hard drives?
The reason I’m asking is because this is a huge violation of privacy and according to researchers the source code for the hard drive firmware came directly from company’s like Western Digital. Articles explain that hard drives can only be destroyed if you are infected or targeted.
“Drives made by Seagate Technology, Western Digital Technologies, Hitachi, Samsung Electronics and Toshiba can be modified by two of Equation’s hard disk drive malware”
Please respond with a good answer and don’t blow me off.
