Budget encrypted USB hard drives easily cracked
In an evaluation of the security of external USB hard drives, the Staray S125 and S325 from Chinese manufacturer Raidon, our tests show the security features of these drives offer very little protection. The flaws in this case include weak encryption and keys stored in plain text. In our new feature, Cracking budget encryption, we describe in detail one approach to cracking such drives.
