How AI is Helping to Prevent Data Loss from Disk Drive Failure

All hard drives will fail at some point and while this is particularly true of traditional, magnetic disk hard drives, newer SSDs that use flash memory also face issues once their memory cells start to fail or they accrue a large number of bad blocks.

Ensuring the stability and reliability of HDDs and SSDs alike is critical to safeguarding that data. With this in mind, you can actually predict drive failure using AI.

Examine this white paper to learn how and to get a glimpse at the predictive processes of Acronis Disk Health Service.

This attack is well known and exploitation tools are publicly available. Android 5.0 claims to have resolved the previous attack. We describe a new attack on Android 5.0, which does not take significantly longer to conduct than the pre-Android 5.0 exploit. We also discuss potential countermeasures, observing that simple solutions are hard to find.
