Bloomberg’s Michael Riley, co-reporter of “The Big Hack”, on 5 October 2018, just after the original report was published:
That’s the unique thing about this attack. Although details have
been very tightly held, there is physical evidence out there in
the world. Now that details are out, it will be hard to keep more
He’s 100 percent right — once the details were out, it would have been nearly impossible for more details, including physical evidence (actual secret chips on actual Supermicro components) not to emerge.
If the story were true.
