Seagate patches Personal Cloud NAS file deletion flaw

January 15, 2018

Owners of Seagate Personal Cloud network-attached storage (NAS) products are advised to upgrade to firmware release as soon as possible, following the discovery of a remotely exploitable security vulnerability which allows for deletion of arbitrary files and directories.

Designed for home, rather than business, use, Seagate’s Personal Cloud products come in single- and two-drive variants and provide built-in software for everything from direct file sharing and backup to connection through to external services including Google Drive and Dropbox.
