FTDI recently took the same approach of having their driver deliberately brick counterfeit chips, rather than throwing an error and refusing to talk to them.

This is why I no longer purchase their chips or design them into my projects. A vendor who distributes drivers which deliberately brick hardware is too much of a liability. I understand that counterfeit products are a real problem, but I do not accept that response.
