NSA CEO denies existence of Supermicro hack




A CEO of the American secret service NSA has denied having knowledge of the implantation of spy chips on Supermother’s server motherboards. According to him, no company has found anything yet.

NSA CEO Rob Joyce said in an interview at the Securing Cyberspace conference of the American Chamber of Commerce that he had not seen anything of the malicious chips. “There are now all kinds of companies panicking about this care, but nobody has found something, it just is not there.”

The interviewer, Carl Cannon, insisted on anything in Bloomberg ‘s story about the espionage chips . “Am I confident that there is something in this story? No, I do not, I’m worried about the distraction that this causes.”

Financial news agency Bloomberg published last week based on several years of research and claims from many sources that the Chinese government had placed chips on Supermother’s server motherboards. Then those servers would have been with large companies such as Amazon and Apple. Among other American and British government institutions say not to doubt the denials of the companies involved: Amazon, Apple and Supermicro. The Norwegian security authority Nasjonal Sikkerhetsmyndighet says something else and claims that it found a problem with Supermicro servers in June.
