+ - EDA Destroys Printers, Cameras, Keyboards, and Mice to combat Malware->

rwise2112 (648849) writes "A security contractor declared EDA's systems largely clean, but found malware on six systems and advised these were easily repaired by reimaging the affected machines.

The CIO of the EDA, however, fearing that the agency was under attack from a nation-state, insisted instead on a policy of physical destruction. The EDA destroyed not only (uninfected) desktop computers but also printers, cameras, keyboards, and even mice. The destruction only stopped—sparing $3 million of equipment—because the agency had run out of money to pay for destroying the hardware."
