    till now, they probally didnt thought of it that others can reverse engineer theyr firmware, haha..
    well, i guess from now on they gonna encrypt theyr firmware, since this will be cheaper or more easy then fixing teh software in the firmware...:p

    Still no valuable method to break into a system. If anyone would be at this point of access, one could use more common methods to say "Hello!".

    But nice to see a real PoC about it. ... to know what COULD be. ...

    When you hack/modify video game code - you get sued for breaking EULA. Maybe they should slap some EULAs onto CPUs and all the other stuff, there will be less articles like this. This "discovery" is basically just noise.

    if it wouldnt go public, it might never get fixed..
    So, its good when those multi million dollar coperations are forced to fix the crap they did wrong in teh first place..
    wich is, and will be good in the long run..

    Fix what? Do you know anyone that uses hardware encryption on consumer ssd? No? Neither do I. Now lets waste companies money and time to fix something no one uses, and hope they don't rise the prices of products.

    Really? Reverse engineering firmware has been a thing since firmware was a thing, surely you know that.
