As you might know, Blancco Ltd has acquired DBAN.
However, DBAN will remain as Community project and I will be your contact person from now on.
My tasks include the DBAN fixes and updates.
We are looking forward to a new release in the coming months. So, all your fix/update wishes are welcome.
It is my pleasure to work with you to make DBAN better!

For the moment DBAN doesn't support Secure Erase and Enhanced Secure Erase commands.
But if you really want to remove remapped sectors, check this out:
