+ - DHS Admits Knowledge Of Infected Technology->

Submitted by smitty777
smitty777 (1612557) writes "Deputy Undersecretary Schaffer of the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate confessed to being aware of foreign technology that had been imported with spyware, malware, and other security risks. According to the article, "More worryingly, the hearing specifically mentioned hardware components as possibly being compromised--which raises the questions of whether, perhaps, something as innocuous as Flash memory or embedded RFID chips could be used by interested foreign parties."

These hearings were held on July 7th to "examine the nature and extent of the current threat to America's infrastructure."
