The United States and UK authorities have joined Amazon and Apple in contesting a blockbuster story last week that Chinese spies implanted tiny chips onto supply chain components used in the tech giants' products. "Like our partners in the United Kingdom, the National Cyber Security Center, at this time we have no reason to doubt the statements from the companies named in the story".
The report by Bloomberg News, which cited unidentified USA officials, said the malicious chips were inserted into equipment supplied by Supermicro Computer Inc.to American companies and government agencies.
"The NCSC engages confidentially with security researchers and urges anybody with credible intelligence about these reports to contact us", it said.
Referencing the statement from NCSC, which is part of the U.K.'s GCHQ signal intelligence agency, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Saturday issued a similarly worded reaction. "Nothing was ever found", he wrote in the letter provided to Reuters.
Apple Inc. told U.S. lawmakers that its servers weren't compromised and sought to assure them that the company's global supply chain is secure. Apple denied the report, and said that Bloomberg is confusing an event that took place in 2016 when the company found an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of its labs.
While I'd like to believe companies like Apple and Amazon protect both consumers and the government - for all that is wrong with capitalism, our money is meaningful if nothing else is - I think I would be shocked if the hack was real and they copped to it without a lot more pressure, which they probably won't get as long as citizens/customers aren't directly involved.
Apple said it's been in contact with Bloomberg's reporters since October 2017, and repeatedly asked them to provide specific details about the alleged malicious chips before the article published. However, Apple, Supermicro, and AWS have denied the allegations, with Apple publishing an unambiguous statement that completely rejects the notion of malicious chips being found in any servers.
Bloomberg has stuck by its report, insisting on its veracity.
In a statement released Saturday, the DHS said that it was "aware" of the report, but added: "Like our partners in the United Kingdom, the National Cyber Security Centre, at this time we have no reason to doubt the statements from the companies named in the story".
