Almost, but not quite the same thing. Currently they can revoke the key used by the HDFury and turn all of them into bricks. I
don't believe they have done this yet because I think it shares a key with another more popular product, but if HDFury becomes
common, they could do it.

This key announcement means that a device could be designed that could be easily re-programmed to use a new key. This means it
could not be bricked.
