DHS: Imported Tech Tainted with Backdoor Attack Tools
DHS admitted that backdoor malware comes embedded in brand-new imported electronics. Yet that security threat has been real for years; a Defense Science Board warned about a tainted supply chain for tech devices and components back in 2005.
This article bothers me because we received a new computer years ago and though we had Norton Antivirus, we were attacked by a virus and I didn't feel we were at fault. I'm suspicious now because of the article.http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/76262
How are you going to know? How are you going to know if that new computer you buy comes with embedded malware?
