China Hacks with Grain of Rice Chip
- China accused of hardware level hacking that may have infiltrated the highest-levels of American commerce
- As far back as 2009 Chinese manufacturers were selling LCD Picture frames that were infected with malware at the factory.
- Apple in particular has a history with booting dicey hardware manufacturers such as, oh, idunno, SuperMicro
- These issues were minor enough that Apple also began designing its own servers to avoid such modifications and snooping.
- Maybe not coincidentally, Google, Facebook and Twitter design their own servers.
- The denials from Amazon and Apple about the nature and severity of this issue are both rigorous and emphatic
- Facial Recognition as a logon? Cool Technology bro.. just don’t cut those sideburns
- Alas poor Oracle Cloud
