disk encryption hack still working?

Postby freespirit » 2017-05-11 10:18

i've read this article this hacking is still working or is fixed?

if this issue is fixed do you think full disk encryption is secure or not so much? and what do you suggest?

As you have already been told repeatedly in another thread from just a few months back, if a machine isn't physically secure, then it isn't secure at all.

That answer will not change, no matter how many different ways you come up with to feed your paranoi... er, um, ask your question.

Besides, the real threat is hardware, not software. All the encryption in the world doesn't help when the firmware on your hard drive (or USB stick, or NIC, router, or anything else) is pwned.

Better meds?
Troll someplace else?
Get a life?

Those are just a few of the most obvious options.
