Amazon and Supermicro also request to withdraw article Chinese espionage chips




After Apple, Amazon and Supermicro also call on Bloomberg to withdraw the article about the secret placement of espionage chips on motherboards. No other publication has confirmed the claims.

According to the head of Amazon Web Services, Andy Jassy, ​​the Bloomberg article was not only about Apple, but also about Amazon incorrectly: “They showed no evidence, the story continued to change and they were not interested in our answers unless we theories. ”

The Supermicro CEO also wants Bloomberg to return to its claims. According to him, if the reporting is correct, there must be many manipulated motherboards, but the company itself has not found anything, Bloomberg has not shown affected motherboards and other customers have found no evidence. Supermicro will continue to investigate the case, Reuters writes .

On Friday , Apple CEO Tim Cook requested that the article be withdrawn, but Bloomberg then left it behind the story. That would have worked for a year and seventeen sources would have confirmed it. Bloomberg’s editors would have been ‘frustrated’ that other media, such as the NYT, WSJ and Washington Post, do not get the news reports confirmed, writes at least the Washington Post .

Bloomberg published a story two weeks ago about espionage chips that the Chinese government would place on Supermother’s server motherboards, which then ended up in data centers of large companies such as Amazon and Apple. The US and the UK agreed with the denials of the companies involved.
