    Your 'procedure' link on the main article does not go to the correct address and gives a 404 error

    Re: News - Corsair warns of Padlock 2 security glitch

    IMO Corsair should stick to what they do best - PSUs, RAM, etc, this is the second secure device they've made and the second time they've messed up. It's no good releasing a fix later, what about all the devices that have already been stolen, waiting for something like this to crack into them? Leave security to the security companies - bad security is worse than no security, people will entrust more sensitive data to a device they believe is totally secure so risk losing more. Is the relatively tiny profit they make on these compared to their other products worth potentially ruining peoples' lives depending on the data they might lose? I'm not saying no companies ever make mistakes, but it's annoying to say the least that something this trivial wasn't picked up in testing, the same goes for the first one...
