Proof was found that products manufactured by the Chinese tech giant Huawei have backdoors which allow access to spying. Actually, this is why US Senators banned the company from taking US government projects - it had been claimed that Huawei was a tool of the Chinese military. The only problem was that the backdoors in the Huawei equipment were put there because American spooks wanted to spy on everyone - in other words, the Chinese tech giant was just doing what it was told.
It turned out that if you chose traditional and reliable US companies because of your fear of Chinese intrusion, they would have exactly the same backdoor installed. The researchers presented a snapshot of dozens of “zero-day” exploits used to spy on both American citizens and foreigners. It seems that the National Security Agency is able to use zero-day exploits to track communications passing via the switches and routers of all the world’s largest networking vendors, Dell Cisco, Juniper Networks and Huawei.
It was proved that Dell and HP servers also have a backdoor, and Apple and Samsung devices were not an exception. It looks like the backdoor is in the server hardware systems at the BIOS level.
In the meantime, the reports of the National Security Agency admit that such exploits work across servers running the Microsoft Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and even Sun Solaris operating systems, which may give away the spook's plan - after all, how many terrorists are using Solaris?
The experts confirmed that Dell's best-selling PowerEdge servers (1850, 2850, 1950, 2950) all have a vulnerability which lets the NSA post spyware into the BIOS through either remote access or the inserting of a USB drive.
Similar NSA exploit, so-called GODSURGE, exploits a JTAG debugging interface in the Dell PowerEdge 1950 and 2950, which is normally used to test the BIOS/firmware for bugs. It turned out that it can also be used to reflash the BIOS from scratch.
Finally, HP’s Proliant 380DL G5 server can also be opened with IRONCHEF. The latter can extract information from the server via two-way RF communication.
Moreover, the National Security Agency has also developed an exploit for tapping Apple's iPhone dubbed DROPOUTJEEP and another for Vole's Windows Phone called TOTEGHOSTLY.

|Oh and BTW for you that are so gullible and easily swayed into believing this. Why would the Chinese start doing anything the US tells them when they have never ever gone out of their way to ever help the US? Yea okay!!|

Um well who do you think bailed the yanks out of their debt crisis?? the Chinese! The Chinese hold over $1.4 trillion dollars worth of US treasury bonds and currency which is about 10% of the current publicly owned debt of the US!

|"The researchers"? Who proved it and what methods did they use to learn and report such info? Jesus christ man, get some f'n sources! Did you graduate high school yet? There are basic fundamentals you learn in Grade 8 about fair reporting. Why write articles when you clearly have no training on how to properly write a story? Blogs are better written than these articles.|

|Everyone backdoors everyone else's products. Welcome to the worldwide surveillance state. Encrypt everything and fxck the police!|
"The researchers"? were in fact the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, from what I have read it seems more of a story made up to support and increase the sale of home produced electrical equipment in the US rather than buying exported good, thus giving the US economy a well needed boost.
Have you actually looked at other articles on this story(this article is just some basic info that most people would then use to do their on research on). Did you graduate high school yet? There are basic fundamentals you learn in Grade 8 about fair reporting or internet searching?
|@darksx: You think just because the cold war ended that all the little spies have retired to the retirement home for secret agents, you think that people are paranoid because their information is being stolen < fact. That, cyber-crime is just a figment of our imaginations, that countries aren't snooping on each other, that Iran aren't making or haven't made Nuclear weapons, that America doesn't have an agenda for world domination, that North Korea isn't ruled by a crazy just like America, that the UK are squeaky clean toff's more concerned about afternoon tea than being the centre for financial corruption. Ever heard of a Mr Edward Snowden?|
I think you need to wake up dude, flower power is over, the hippies have got jobs now and wear suits lol!
