Default Padlock 2 Update

Ich habe einen Padlock2 mit 16GB.
Nun hab ich über eine Sicherheitslücke gelesen, welche per Prozedure geschlossen werden kann.
Ich würde das gerne machen, kann diesen Ablauf aber niergens finden.
Daher bitte ich um Hilfe.

Currently, it seems, if a user presses Key and 0/1 for more than three seconds, the Padlock will erase the password without deleting the data on the drive, presenting a security risk. However, this apparently only happens once so if users follow the stages suggested by Corsair then set the password again, it will apparently be hunky-dory. Corsair warns, while the procedure is not destructive, users are recommended to back up their data. Its instructions are as follows:
  1. Drive must be in a LOCKED state. If the drive is plugged into a system, remove it.
  2. Press and hold the KEY button and the 0/1 button down, simultaneously, for five or more seconds.
  3. Release the KEY and 0/1 buttons. Note that at this stage your password MAY have been erased, but data will still exist on the drive.
  4. Wait until any LEDs are no longer illuminated or blinking
  5. Press and hold the KEY button for three seconds. Both red and green LEDs will illuminate
  6. Enter a new PIN using the PIN keys. A user PIN may be 4 to 10 digits long; for security, Corsair recommends 6 digits or more.
  7. Press and release the KEY button. Both red and green LEDs will blink in unison.
  8. Re-enter your PIN to confirm.
  9. Press and release the Key button. Green LED will flash, indicating your PIN has been accepted.
  10. Your drive is now secure.

Hi PadlockPIN,

wann hast du deinen Padlock 2 gekauft? Das dieser noch von diesem anfänglichen Problem überhaupt betroffen ist, ist eher unwahrscheinlich.
