Bitlocker users SSD hardware may not be secure

Some SSD hardware encryption isn't secure. BitLocker users are subject to this issue because BitLocker defaults to using the SSD's 

hardware encryption scheme. See Microsoft's advisory https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/security-guidance/advisory/ADV180028 

In the advisory, Microsoft advises to:
1.Configure and deploy a Group Policy to enable forced software encryption.
2.Fully turn off BitLocker to decrypt the drive.
3.Enable BitLocker again.
