^ Apple denied this story
Quote:
We are deeply disappointed that in their dealings with us, Bloomberg’s reporters have not been open to the possibility that they or their sources might be wrong or misinformed. Our best guess is that they are confusing their story with a previously reported 2016 incident in which we discovered an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of our labs. That one-time event was determined to be accidental and not a targeted attack against Apple.
Amazon's denial
Quote:
It’s untrue that AWS knew about a supply chain compromise, an issue with malicious chips, or hardware modifications when acquiring Elemental. It’s also untrue that AWS knew about servers containing malicious chips or modifications in data centers based in China, or that AWS worked with the FBI to investigate or provide data about malicious hardware.
China is "winning" economically anyway. Everyone that prioritizes cost over quality produces stuff there.

Not surprised that they have chips on boards, surprised at how small the chip is though, good job to the engineers who made it . It wouldn't surprise me in the least if these were on every motherboard in PC's, phones, consoles, T.V's etc.

Lets be real though most spy agencies have something like this going on, be it software or hardware, the 5 eyes countries have a lot of reach all around the world so for China to have this kind of access seeing everything is made there anyway... it's kinda on the countries getting servers and hardware from them that they have this access now.

Like we keep getting told here in Aus "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear" guess that doesn't apply to governments and business though...

This report stinks to high heaven. None of their targets are crying foul.
