British spy agency casts more doubt on spy chip report

The UK’s top national cybersecurity agency GCHQ told Reuters on Friday that it didn’t see any reason to question the validity of Apple and Amazon’s denials that their servers were compromised following a meteoric report from Bloomberg on Thursday. The report claimed that Chinese spies were able to place microchips in the companies’ servers, allegedly giving the Chinese government backdoor access to some of the largest cloud platforms in the world.
