More flash drive firms admit to security flaws

More flash drive firms admit to security flaws January 14, 2010 — 10:38am ET | By Paul Mah - "In the wake of last week's news that some of Kingston's secure flash drives have underlying flaws, more manufacturers have stepped forward saying they suffer from similar issues. So far, Verbatim and SanDisk have revealed that similar security flaws exist on some of their secure USB flash drives. Both companies issued online application upgrades to address the problem, though it is unclear how a software update can resolve what appears to be a fundamental design flaw."

Sometimes I wonder where the technology intelligence went in the technology industry. This is probably another case of profit margins over product quality. Or some doofus was working the usual half-assed effort.
