WTF

This is indefensible to be honest. If FTDI detects a counterfeit chip, the correct course of actions would be to have the driver refuse to interact with it. Intentionally breaking things is ridiculous, and they should be sued by end-users into oblivion. Their actions could literally result in people DYING. There are countless ways for them to send a message - this is NOT an appropriate one.
