Corrupted Intel SSDs?

Intel has indicated that there is the possibility of corruption on X25m and X18m SSD units related to setting a drive BIOS password. The problem is triggered if a user has set a password, changes or removes the password and then reboots the host computer. Shipments of these SSDs have been suspended however here in SA it’s likely that some have already purchased these. It’s recommended that you contact your local Intel supplier if you have purchased on of these units in the last few weeks.
