Is there a firmware update for the 4TB WD passport to fix this? I’m sure this error is terrifying many less knowledgeable Linux users and causing WD to process unnecessary RMAs. In any case, it is a huge security issue, because file systems use this command to efficiently clear freed blocks to zeros.
