'Western Digital, maker of the popular My Disk external hard drives,
is recommending customers unplug My Disk Live storage devices from the
Internet until further notice while company engineers investigate
unexplained compromises that have completely wiped data from devices
around the world.
The mass incidents of disk wiping came to light in this thread on
Western Digital’s support forum. So far, there are no reports of
deleted data later being restored.'
