Bob ‘n Alice On Security

Helping to Avoid a False Sense of Security

Fake Kingston Flash Drives

with one comment

Here’s a link to an interesting post on fake Kingston flash drives being sold on eBay. This is a good reminder to always buy flash drives (or any portable media) that are labeled with individual serial numbers, preferably directly on the drive itself. A call to the vendor is also a good idea, especially when purchasing in bulk.

This security professional is going to make some calls right now….

As always, stay safe and avoid a false sense of security.
