Recently Bloomberg Businessweek published a sensational article in which it told about a tricky operation carried out by the Chinese secret services using the spy chips built into the equipment. According to the publication, Chinese manufacturers installed such chips on server boards used by techno giants from the USA. Among the first such spies were identified by Apple and Amazon in 2015. Then the companies “quietly” got rid of spy equipment and reported the incident to US intelligence agencies. The Bloomberg article was based on unofficial and unnamed sources. The companies Apple, Amazon, and Supermicro mentioned in the article categorically denied information about spy chip detection and work with US intelligence agencies. However, the article mentioned a specific security expert – Joe Fitzpatrick, who commented on the quality of material released by Bloomberg. According to the expert, the journalists acted extremely unprofessionally. In particular, many of his theoretical discussions about the possibility of such a spyware attack were presented as a reality that had already taken place, and individual words were simply taken out of context. \the situation, and they went and confirmed with insiders 100% of everything that I told, \ A Bloomberg article also provided an image of a spy chip. In fact, it was a standard type of chip, taken from an online store. Fitzpatrick provided a link to this photo as an example of how a chip spy could theoretically look. The expert also said that an attack using spy chips, although possible, is meaningless. Such additional equipment is easily recognized by specialists. It is much more productive to attack using vulnerabilities in standard board components.
