There is no reason to believe that your machine and/or network is not equally compromised. Have you verified the code in your motherboards or nic's eproms? Do you know there isn't a trojan or backdoor hardwired in? Did it come from China's intelligence service or a foreign 'consultant' working at the factory? It may just start acting strange one day, and even after you find out the cause, You may never know who was behind it. It is complete foolishness for a country to outsource the foundation of its security.
