On Hacking MicroSD Cards « bunnie’s blog

The hardware hacker Bunnie Huang gave a talk at the Chaos Compute Club Congress where he offered some good news and some bad news. The good news? SD cards contain powerful, handy micro controllers that are useful to hackers and hobbyists. The bad news? SD cards are woefully insecure.

In a detailed and readable post, Huang describes the exact problems with Flash memory. In order to reduce the price and increase the storage space, engineers have to fight a never-ending form of internal entropy that slowly but surely scrambles the data on every Flash drive.

There is a lot to learn form there, even if techniques used are mostly straight forward. After the attack, someone else then ran the list of recovered passwords through an analysis program, and here is what he came out with.
