Apple denies the existence of malicious chips on its servers



Bloomberg Businessweek recently published an article entitled "The Big Hack" in which he warned of the presence of malicious chips destined for Chinese espionage on servers at Apple's facilities.

Apple has immediately launched a statement, referring to this issue, and categorically denying the existence of this type of chips on their servers.

"WE HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED MALICIOUS CHIPS, HARDWARE MANIPULATIONS OR VULNERABILITIES OF DELIBERATE DEPLOYMENT ON ANY SERVER."

Apple's statement denying the facts
Apple's press release denies each and every statement of Bloomberg Businessweek. In fact, the company has assured that the editors have erred in numerous data: Siri and Topsy have never shared servers, nor Siri has been on servers of the Super Micro company. What's more, Topsy's data was limited to 2,000 servers , instead of 7,000 as mentioned in the controversial article.

"APPLE HAS NEVER BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE FBI OR ANY OTHER AGENCY IN CONNECTION WITH THE ALLEGED INCIDENT."


From Apple have been particularly disappointed with the behavior of Bloomberg journalists.

"WE SUSPECT THAT IN HIS ARTICLE THEY REFER TO A INCIDENT IN 2016 IN WHICH WE DISCOVERED AN INFECTED DISC ON A SINGLE SUPER MICRO SERVER IN ONE OF OUR LABORATORIES."

So, the signature of the bitten apple claims that they have never had to go to the FBI to initiate an investigation in relation to the implementation of microchips of Super Micro servers whose motherboards have been manufactured in China. Nor have they found these malicious chips, as they claimed from Bloomberg.

Anyway, the controversy has been unleashed around Apple ... and has formed an authentic zurriburri that goes for a while.
