“A, Is This Happening, Mr. Schaffer? And, B, What Are We Going to do to Fight Back Against This?” Asked Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah
Our digital global threat has just become more of a reality. Imagine that you are upgrading and buying a new computer, one that will keep pace with the ever growing digital world. What do yo expect with your new purchase, besides getting home or back to the office and setting up your new awesome machine and start ruling the Internet. That was an exciting flash, for a second I thought I was getting a new work station. Well, at minimum you would expect a quality product , no bugs, the most efficient and current operating system, fast – real fast. Yep, it meets your expectations and more and more…
Unfortunately, what you don’t see, feel, or hear is that your new computer may have hardware and software that is already preloaded with spyware and security-sabotaging components built-in, and imported to the United States…Your new purchase, not to mention the inherent risks. Not a very comforting thought.
