Bloomberg is alleging that around 30 companies tech, including Apple, manufactured in China had tiny spy chips embedded in them.
The report alleged hardware used by a number of organisations, including Apple, Amazon, and the military, had been altered during manufacture in China with a small chip onto each device.
Not to worry about your Mac, the article alleges the chips were added to servers, including those potentially used in iCloud, providing Chinese hackers access to the networks.
Apple (and the other tech firms) have strongly disputed the claims and launched an investigation which found no evidence support them.
The UK’s GCHQ, the UK security agency, joins the tech firms in refuting the claims and states it has no reason to doubt the detailed assessments of Apple & Amazon.
Multiple US officials also state they have seen no evidence to support the claims.
