Also serving as her driver through China's San Francisco consulate, the Washington Post story pointed out that the reaction from most of the mainstream media was surprising: Barely a peep out of them. With that author also asking his readers to imagine the firestorm that would have emerged had a Republican Chairman of the House or Senate Intelligence Committee been found to have a Russian spy working for them for 20 years, the Feinstein spy story provides us with more proof the hypocrisy we've been witnessing from the left has been absolutely deafening.
Yet as Paul Sperry over at the NY Post reported back in August, Senator Feinstein was a very easy mark for the Chinese as the vice chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And while Democrats continue to scream about President Trump's alleged 'Russia collusion', as Sperry's story points out, Feinstein, who has been investigating allegations of Trump’s 'collusion' with Russia, was the person who had been compromised by a foreign power.
And as this new story over at Zero Hedge reports, Bloomberg's story was a game changer that hints at something much bigger hidden below the surface with this tiny chip widely used throughout the US military and US intelligence agencies. What damage could China do to America with that kind of access?
In a game-changing report published Thursday morning, Bloomberg Businessweek exposed a sprawling multi-year investigation into China's infiltration of US corporate and defense infrastructure. Most notably, it confirmed that, in addition to efforts designed to sway US elections, China's intelligence community orchestrated a pervasive infiltration of servers used to power everything from MRI machines to the drones used by the CIA and army. They accomplished this using a tiny microchip no bigger than a grain of rice.
Bloomberg's revelations reported on an ongoing government investigation into China's use of a "tiny microchip" that found its way into servers that were widely used throughout the US military and intelligence infrastructure, from Navy warships to DoD server farms. The probe began three years ago after the US intelligence agencies were tipped off by Amazon. And three years later, it remains ongoing.
Nested on the servers’ motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn’t part of the boards’ original design. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shudder through the intelligence community. Elemental’s servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA’s drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships. And Elemental was just one of hundreds of Supermicro customers.
During the ensuing top-secret probe, which remains open more than three years later, investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered machines. Multiple people familiar with the matter say investigators found that the chips had been inserted at factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.
As we hear in the first video below featuring the Bloomberg reporter who wrote this viral story, a computer hardware hack is the most effective type of computer hacking that anyone anywhere can engineer, as he calls it, "the ultimate silent attack".
Warning that a hardware hack effectively negates any other kind of security measures taken by the computer owner, and that no kind of software would be able to detect such a hack, either, with only a physical examination of the actual hardware being able to detect the tiny chip, were all of these hacks which began during the reign of Barack Obama actually ALLOWED to happen, with Obama's mission during his time in office clearly the destruction of the United States military and the 'take down' of the American 'Republic'?
As we see in the graphic above explaining how the hack worked according to US officials, the compromised motherboards were built into servers and once the compromise units had been switched on, the microchip altered the computer's operating system core so that it could accept other modifications from the attackers, including allowing computers controlled by the attackers to search for further instructions and code.
Talk about an absolute technological, military and intelligence disaster! The excerpt below from this new story over at The Drive's WarZone illustrates for us the severity of what has just been disclosed with the following 2 sentences deserving extra emphasis: “Think of Supermicro as the Microsoft of the hardware world,” a former U.S. intelligence official told Bloomberg. “Attacking Supermicro motherboards is like attacking Windows. It’s like attacking the whole world.”
A new report is alleging the Chinese government directly interceded to insert small microchips into motherboards from a company called Supermicro, that are in use in servers everywhere from the adult film industry to U.S. military and U.S. Intelligence Community data centers, which make them vulnerable open them up to remote hacks. If the claims turn out to be true, it would be an intelligence operation of historic proportions that would have far-reaching and long-lasting ramifications.
On Oct. 4, 2018, Bloomberg Businessweek published its story, which is the culmination of years of investigative work and cites nearly 20 anonymous sources from both the U.S. government and private companies reportedly involved in the affair. The piece says that American authorities first became aware of the existence of the chips in 2015, that the classified probe is still ongoing, and that U.S. officials have identified an unspecified unit of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) as being responsible for sneaking the malicious hardware into the servers.
And as this new story over at the Washington Post reports, among the far reaching and long lasting implications from these revelations will be a tremendous amount of economic fallout. With these compromised units having been built into computers all over the planet, the few paragraphs from their story below also hint of the dangers that still lay ahead.
The exploit involved tiny components — some the size of a sharpened pencil tip — that were very difficult to spot but that provided a backdoor to the servers into which they were built. The components could communicate with external computers and download instructions from them, which could allow Chinese military hackers to compromise passwords and gain control over what the servers did. If the servers were used for sensitive tasks, this kind of access could have massive security repercussions.
What is economically important, however, is how the Chinese military did this. They weaponized the complex supply chain through which most sophisticated electronics are built. That has huge implications for the world economy.
And as we had reported on ANP back on August 30th, we can't forget that while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, China allegedly had real-time access to her emails according to this story over at the Gateway Pundit which President Trump himself had tweeted about in the tweet seen above. With that alleged hack possibly resulting in the deaths of 30 or more American spies in China, what else is still hiding below the surface of this latest revealed hack? With classified information possibly obtained by China about the lives of the good men and women within the US military, our weapons, or just about anything else now kept online, the potential for the massive fallout from this hack to get much worse is staggering.
And as we had reported in our August 30th story, the extremely reckless and clearly illegal actions taken by Hillary Clinton may have easily led to the deaths of a countless number of American citizens and 'assets' in other countries and while the totally complicit mainstream media will never ask the right questions, we did it for them.
Did China's hacking of Hillary Clinton's emails lead to the roundup and slaugher of CIA assets in China? And was China actually permitted to carry out the recent hacks we are now finding out about by the totalitarian globalists within Congress who sold out America for the 'new world order', who've long been working to take down the sovereignty of America and turn the people of our country into 2nd class citizens? With many of them within Congress selling away their souls and the truth in an attempt to block Brett Kavanaugh from becoming our next Supreme Court Justice, we wouldn't put anything past them.
