One element of the US Govt is supporting vendors in denying the Bloomberg article about hardware implants in the supply chain.
The Department of Homeland Security is aware of the media reports of a technology supply chain compromise. Like our partners in the UK, the National Cyber Security Centre, at this time we have no reason to doubt the statements from the companies named in the story.
As of now, Bloomberg is no longer a credible source of technology news for me. It would seem that they published the Supermicro implant piece to get page views (money) instead of the real story which is much less interesting. Short term gains, will there be long term damage ?
