2018-10-09 | Risky Business interviews Joe Fitz, Google Plus to close up, and A few powershell scripts
Tuesday, October 9
More questionable aspects of the China chip story. Risky Business podcast did an interview with Joe Fitz, a named source said his comments were taken out of context and had concerns that what they were describing "didn't make any sense". Dragos’ Robert Lee has a good thread asking some important questions as well.
TWEET OF THE DAY
They claimed anonymous US intelligence community sources as well. Except I led the ICS threat discovery mission at the time at the NSA. And I had never heard of this attack being a cyber attack. The NSA doesn’t see everything but if the US IC is your source we would have. - @RobertMLee

Current status of the SuperMicro hardware implant story: you must read the 99 tweet threads, listen to the podcast, pour beers into the five enlightened sages and then journey over seven seas and seven mountains to find the golden needle in a roc's nest. That contains the truth.
