Even if they aren't lying, the question is "did they use AES 256 correctly?"

There are a number of ways, some of them non-obvious, to produce a system that does, in fact, use AES 256 in some capacity; but doesn't actually achieve reasonably security against anybody who wouldn't also be stopped by XOR and a scary looking autorun program(particularly since, as this is a small USB drive, the attacker can probably make some plausible assumptions about some of the plaintext, based on what is known about what fat32 volumes look like).

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.

Working...
