Re: a national newspaper, which recorded the data

I might be wrong, but it seems some storage devices will accept firmware updates and presumably you need to avoid those.

No, device makers need to get their act together and enforce encrypted and/or signed firmware images. You need to be able to update the firmware when flaws are found, right ?
