A new proof-of-concept hardware implant shows how easy it may be to hide malicious chips inside IT equipment.
More than a year has passed since Bloomberg Businessweek grabbed the lapels of the cybersecurity world with a bombshell claim: that Supermicro motherboards in servers used by major tech firms, including Apple and Amazon, had been stealthily implanted with a chip the size of a rice grain that allowed Chinese hackers to spy deep into those networks. Apple, Amazon, and Supermicro all vehemently denied the report. The NSA dismissed it as a false alarm. The Defcon hacker conference awarded it two Pwnie Awards, for "most overhyped bug" and "most epic fail." And no follow-up reporting has yet affirmed its central premise.

Ain't this some :poop:

Saw this on the news just now, maybe some of you did too? Hope the culprits do some serious time.

I hope it was ok to add this to your thread, Correlate, and that you don't mind. 😇 There were no other open threads to tack this onto, it seems.
