on the recent security conference, some guys demonstrated that the intel SSD520 can be unpluged from the original PC and then be repluged to the attacking PC.

According to the described tests, other vendor disks firmware detect the unplugging of the SATA cable and lock the drive making this type of attack useless. Has anyone seen a ticket / bug yaddressing this issue? For it looks like a "bug" that can be fixed with a firmware update.
