      So now the US Department of Homeland Security has issued a statement similar to the one issued by UK National Cyber Security Centre:

      “The Department of Homeland Security is aware of the media reports of a technology supply chain compromise. Like our partners in the UK, the National Cyber Security Centre, at this time we have no reason to doubt the statements from the companies named in the story. Information and communications technology supply chain security is core to DHS’s cybersecurity mission and we are committed to the security and integrity of the technology on which Americans and others around the world increasingly rely. Just this month – National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – we launched several government-industry initiatives to develop near- and long-term solutions to manage risk posed by the complex challenges of increasingly global supply chains. These initiatives will build on existing partnerships with a wide range of technology companies to strengthen our nation’s collective cybersecurity and risk management efforts.”
      The wide-spread joke in China is that US Homeland Security is not supporting Bloomberg's report because the chips were actually planted by them. So they do not want a full-blown investigation. Of course, this is only a joke! relax!

        Chinese foreign ministry answering question regarding this:

        Lastly, I found it funny that Bloomberg made this statement:

        Bloomberg LP has been a Supermicro customer. According to a Bloomberg LP spokesperson, the company has found no evidence to suggest that it has been affected by the hardware issues raised in the article.
        It is time for Bloomberg to answer some questions.

            This was reported in the Chinese media, but not in the top headlines. Now, it has moved into the 2nd spot in headlines: (google translation can help you). Given the amount of Chinese media attention on this "news", Bloomberg's "story" is most likely false.
