    “Apple… a few weeks after it identified the malicious chips, the company started removing all Supermicro servers from its data centers, a process Apple referred to internally as “going to zero.” Every Supermicro server, all 7,000 or so”

    Best to use something like Speccy, or pull the lid and research the MB part number on your PC to determine if you are impacted.

    Whats most interesting is that all data placed into the Apple Cloud should be considered compromised, include data from your iPhone/iDevice. Another interesting fact is that Facebook and Google are known for “building their own cloud hardware.” There are not that many device manufactures that play in the roll your own server class hardware. Chances are that Facebook and Google were hit too, not sure why they are talked about.
