Hi, what's the most secure external HDD, does any mainstream vendor's latest HDD, USB, SD cards protect firmware with signed encrypted key, prevent buffer?awesome if a malware has root access/ admin privilege, can it try to attack firmware?
also are HDD's formatted with GPT or MBR? Is there any way to lock, prevent disk sector from modification? what about protecting HDD's infrastructure? (both hardware:firmware, software:Disk sector)

Moved from 'External hardware' to 'General security'.
