Basically, this is yet another back-door that can be used to spy on the entire world, as you go about your business typing MS word, PowerPoint and other personal documents and store it on your hard drive, thinking it is safe and secure, but in-fact the backdoor may be reporting your work to spy agencies.

The hard drive manufacturers are as follows:

- Maxtor
- Hitachi
- Seagate
- Samsung
- Toshiba
- Western Digital

Notice that the above manufacturers are American and Japanese. For those of you who don’t know the U.S and Japan are allies.
