America Does Not Believe in Chinese Spy Hack Apple and Amazon
The US Department of Homeland Security (Homeland Security) does not doubt statements from companies that deny having become victims of a Chinese hack via a secret microchip.
Last week, Bloomberg news agency reported that China had broken into computer equipment using a spy chip in some thirty large US companies, including Apple and Amazon. The companies then denied this.
The British cyber watchdog intelligence service also indicated that there is no reason to doubt these statements. The Chinese government has also denied Bloomberg’s message.
The reports about a spy chip did cause unrest in the chip sector. The stock market prices of chip companies came under considerable pressure.
