Using a WD My Book Live? Make Sure It’s Backed Up!

by | Jul 1, 2021 | News | 0 comments

Many users of WD’s NAS (network attached storage) device called “My Book Live” have recently discovered that their device has been factory reset and their data irretrievably deleted. WD is investigating whether a security vulnerability has allowed hackers to infiltrate the devices. In the meantime, WD recommends disconnecting the devices from the internet.
