Defective USBs (aqua/teal)

In April 2015 ASIC took delivery of a number of USBs for distribution to teachers, with copies of ASIC's MoneySmart Teaching resources. After a limited distribution of 497 aqua/teal coloured USBs to external parties between 13-23 April, ASIC's internal testing identified that the USBs were defective.

ASIC immediately took steps to locate the defective USBs, and to advise recipients to either destroy or return them to ASIC. All but one of the USBs has been located.  

Computers loaded with up-to-date security software would be likely to detect if a USB was defective.
Anyone who is concerned they may have a defective USB, should destroy it and ASIC will provide a clean replacement.  

ASIC reminds everyone to protect themselves from cyber risks by taking measures such as using anti-virus programs, protecting their personal information online and using strong passwords. For any enquiries about this matter please contact moneysmartteaching@asic.gov.au
