Victorinox the creators of the Swiss Army knife and products has released an un-hackable USB swiss army flash drive in the UK. The company claims that it is the most secure device of its kind available to the public. The USB drive has several security layers implemented into it. The drive includes a fingerprint identification and thermal sensor, as well as tamper-proof protection. Any attempt to forcibly open the drive will trigger a self-destruct that will burn the CPU and memory chip inside. Amazing!
Victorinox was so confident that the drive was un-hackable that they offered a £100,000 prize for the person that could hack it. It was not hacked in the 2-hour limit that was imposed. The drive features AES256 bit encryption.
