I came across this:

Corsair has issued a press release announcing the discovery of a security issue that exposes data on their Flash Padlock 2 USB Flash Drive. The drive uses a keypad to allow users to enter a PIN in order to unlock data on the drive. The announced vulnerability allows anyone to access the data on the drive without knowing or entering the correct PIN. In the press release Corsair included a 10-step process that must be undertaken by the end user in order for the drive to “meet its security specification”, which presumably means to keep the data secure from those without knowledge of the PIN.

 

But the link to the press release doesn't work:

Is there such a vulnerability and if so were are the instructions for fixing it?
