Security Flaws Found in Widely Used Data Storage Devices | Avast



New research from Radboud University, related to the way the self-storage devices (SSDs) encrypt stored data, found that serious vulnerabilities exist in widely used products from popular manufacturers like Samsung and Crucial (Micron Technology). As these drives do not provide a high level of protection, a malicious expert with direct physical access to them could easily bypass existing security measures to gain access to the data, without knowing the user’s chosen password.
