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 email@example.com
