Several SSDs with hardware encryption appear to be busted. But the really terrible thing is that Bitlocker apparently relies totally on the SSD encryption if you have it. ru.nl/publish/pages/… via @ProfWoodward
Oh god this is so bad. I don’t even.
Oh. My. God.
I don’t know if I can keep reading this paper. It just keeps getting dumber.
The encrypted SSD has a master password that’s set to “”. But don’t worry, customers, you can turn it off! Everything will be fine.
Being earnest now: Microsoft trusting these devices to implement Bitlocker has to be the single dumbest thing that company has ever done. It’s like jumping out of a plane with an umbrella instead of a parachute.
And not even a real umbrella. More like one of these.
