Western Digital Confirms 'My Book Live' Drives Are Being Deleted Remotely
Western Digital’s popular My Book Live hard drives are being deleted remotely by an unknown attacker, according to the company. And there’s not much anyone can do at this point but unplug their drives from the internet.
“We have determined that some My Book Live devices have been compromised by a threat actor,” Western Digital’s Jolin Tan told Gizmodo early Friday by email. “In some cases, this compromise has led to a factory reset that appears to erase all data on the device.”
But Western Digital assures users the company’s cloud system hasn’t been compromised though the incident is still under active investigation.
