    Miniature Chinese Spies



    Supermicro, the tech company allegedly compromised by Chinese spies

    A report in Bloomberg Businessweek claims Chinese government operatives installed tiny spy chips in Supermicro server motherboards, which it says reached Apple, Amazon, the US government, banks and others.
    Supermicro, Apple and Amazon strongly deny the allegations.




    The report comes as concerns grow globally about the security of technology supply chains for smartphones, servers and other computer parts, particularly those dominated by Chinese factories.

    Bloomberg Businessweek cited 17 unidentified intelligence and company sources who outlined how Chinese government operatives placed computer chips in the equipment during the manufacturing process, giving Beijing remote access to internal networks.

    You may wish to read some retorts :

    Apple denies claims of China's infiltration through implanted chips


    "In response, Apple, Amazon and Supermicro had all said the claims in the article were not true."

    You may also want to investigate how Intel and AMD accommodate by-passing the CPU by the placement of it's "management" chip.

    As requested an other source for denials: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-c...-idUSKCN1ME19J

    When American firms set up backdoors in OS and other software, it's different as they are the good guys and it's on the purpose to fight terrorism (of course)

    apparently Google just got out of a bid for a 10BLN Pentagon project on using AI for another massive surveillance,

    but MS and Amazon got in, and Amazon is expected to win
