Would this happen to be a Western Digital My Book NAS?
That's an hell of a major issue those things have right now! That Ars Technica story from two days ago is a good find GLouie!
>On its website, Western Digital advised customers to disconnect their My Book Live devices to prevent further attacks while the company investigates the mass wiping.

however:
>Western Digital stopped supporting the My Book Live in 2015

. I just bought the drive 11/20 and it’s 2 year warranty

I'm guessing Marc does not have a drive which stopped being supported 6 years ago, since he just purchased it.

I’m not too worried because I’m 99% sure I can get the vast majority of stuff from backblaze disc which is en route. And nothing on it that I recorded. Already picked up another WD 5tb $109 at Best Buy, if I get a new one from WD I’ll find a use for it. Thanks for all the help all! :laugh:

mine is just an external drive, but that's exactly what happened.
Holy Ned!
Was this a drive which connected via Ethernet?
Were you using any WD software to manage data or backups?

Troubling. A further reminder to me to always have multiple, full backups that are not connected to the computer. Better to have copies in several locations and/or a cloud backup. How much is it worth to you if all your data suddenly disappeared right now, be it hack, disk failure, earthquake, burst water pipe, fire, etc.?

Also, don't trust hard drives as a long-term storage solution. See my post here:

I have Backblaze, no way I'd go without it. And a local backup x2 of my 5tb of GD.
