+ - Can you trust Chinese computer equipment?->

Submitted by Ian Lamont
Ian Lamont (1116549) writes "Suspicions about China slipping eavesdropping technology into computer exports have been around for years. But the recent Chinese spying attacks on Google and other Internet companies have revived the hardware spying concerns. An IT World blogger suggests the gear can't be trusted, noting that it wouldn't be hard to add security holes to the firmware of Chinese-made USB memory sticks, computers, hard drives, and cameras. He also implies that running automatic checks for data of interest in the compromised gear would not be difficult."
