Media: intelligence agencies of the USA have found the Chinese chips spies in the equipment of Apple


Blomberg adds that chips have been inserted also into gadgets of Amazon. China delivers about 90% of computers and 75% of mobile phones to the country. According to the edition, the SuperMicro company of the Photo can be involved in introduction of "bugs" in the equipment: Have found Robert Galbraith/Reuters of Intelligence service of the USA in computers and mobile phones of Apple the espionage equipment which is presumably installed in China Bloomberg writes. The agency adds that chips have been inserted also into gadgets of the Amazon company. Article appeared under heading "Big breaking: as China used the tiny chip for penetration into Amazon and Apple". The edition refers to tens of interviews with sources in the American intelligence agencies and corporations which have preferred to remain unnamed in connection with privacy of a part of information. Allegedly, the attack has affected nearly 30 large companies in the USA. In 2015 Amazon has begun the closed Elemental Technologies assessment (the startup specialized in optimization of processing of video) with the prospect of purchase and absorption of business. Products of the company were used for online broadcast of the Olympic Games, communications from the ISS and transfer of video from the American drones of CIA. In the course of check of Amazon has recorded strange behavior of the main product of Elemental Technologies — video servers for work with video. As a result on motherboards of a large number of servers have found the elements which aren't provided by drawings. It has become clear that servers for ET were assembled by other American company — SuperMicro Computer buying accessories from the Chinese suppliers. The microchip of the size of a core fragment for a mechanical pencil allowed to intercept almost any information passing through system to which the infected server has been connected. Among other things, devices were used by the Apple company — in material of Bloomberg it is said that the iPhone producer at that time was a large customer of SuperMicro. The agency with reference to sources in Apple claims that the company has also found the Chinese chips in the summer of 2015 and has soon refused cooperation with SuperMicro. Allegedly, Amazon has reported about opening to intelligence agencies of the USA which have found out that the division of the People's Liberation Army of China specializing in cyber attacks with use of the equipment is involved in installation of chips spies at the Chinese factories. The Apple, Amazon and SuperMicro companies claim that the publication of Bloomberg isn't true: the agency has published official replies of three companies. Washington has refused comments. Beijing was limited to a verbose statement that consider safety of chains of supplies of equipment the general care. Meanwhile the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence considers that the Russian attempts of intervention in affairs of the country grow dim in comparison with what does China. According to him, Beijing has mobilized "the hidden agents of influence" and uses promotion to change perception by Americans of policy of the People's Republic of China.
