‘China spy attack hits Apple and Amazon’ – BBC News

A tiny chip added to server circuit boards helped Chinese spies steal corporate data, Bloomberg says.

The data had been siphoned off via tiny chips inserted on server circuit boards made by a company called Super Micro Computer, reported the news agency.

The servers had been compromised during manufacturing and the chips activated once they were up and running, it said.

Apple, Amazon and Super Micro have rejected Bloomberg’s claims, calling them “untrue”

Judge Halts Plan to End Immigrant Protections

By 

Trump was motived by his “animus against non-white, non-European aliens,” the judge wrote.

The decision, which ends the threat of deportation for hundreds of thousands of people living and working in the U.S., came after a class action lawsuit from recipients of Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. In the suit, the immigrants argued that the administration was motivated by racism when it decided to strip them of TPS protections.

The judge agreed. “President Trump harbors an animus against non-white, non-European aliens which influenced his … decision to end the TPS designation,” U.S. District Judge Edward Chen wrote in his decision.

It consists of the “302” forms of the FBI interviews, which summarize the contents of the interviews, according to aides and senators. The FBI, which has spent only a few days on the investigation, did not submit a conclusion as to who’s telling the truth in the case.
