China Cracks a Great Wall
May 29, 2012
Sergei Skorobogatov of the Computer Laboratory of Cambridge University claims to have found secret back-doors in Chinese manufactured computer chips.
“This particular chip is prevalent in many systems from weapons, nuclear power plants to public transport. In other words, this backdoor access could be turned into an advanced Stuxnet weapon to attack potentially millions of systems. The scale and range of possible attacks has huge implications for National Security and public infrastructure.”
