Most of us know by now that a flaw was discovered in many secured flash drives and other storage devices that would allow nefarious users to bypass the security on encrypted drives and access the data we believed to be secure. The news made headlines and probably made more than a few people nervous since their data was unprotected.

Kingston was one of the manufacturers that made drives that were affected by the security issue. The company has announced that it will replace the affected drives with new products that have upgraded security architecture.

Affected Kingston drives that will be replaced include the DataTraveler BlackBox (DTBB), DataTraveler Secure - Privacy Edition (DTSP) and DataTraveler Elite - Privacy Edition (DTEP). Kingston will replace the defective drives with a FIPS-certified replacement called the DataTraveler Vault for some models.
