Hacker News author Jeremy Hammond, who discovered a bug that would allow attackers to access any USB drive on his computer, was surprised to find that his computer would show an error message when trying to use a USB drive that was formatted with the wrong drive letter.
Hammond has since been able to fix the issue on his laptop, but it is unclear whether the company will update the firmware to fix it.
Hammond tweeted an image showing the error message, saying: “My laptop appears to be broken and my files on it.
I need help!”
Hammond’s laptop had a USB port with a letter “B” in the name, and it appears to have been formatted with “F.”
However, when he opened the USB drive, it would show a different letter than it did in the previous version of the firmware.
Hammond, whose Twitter account is @HammondHammond, wrote on Twitter that the company had confirmed the problem and is working to fix his issue.
The bug was discovered in March and has been around for at least a year, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The EFF said that the vulnerability affects more than 60 percent of devices with USB ports.
The company has since released a fix, and Hammond has updated his laptop with a version that addresses the problem.
