A report published last week by Bloomberg Businessweek claimed that China had infiltrated servers of 30 U.S. companies, including Apple and Amazon.
Apple Vice President for Information Security George Stathakopoulos wrote in a letter to the Senate and House commerce committees that the company had repeatedly investigated and found no evidence for the main points in a Bloomberg Businessweek article published on Thursday, including that chips inside servers sold to Apple by Super Micro Computer Inc (SMCI.PK) allowed for backdoor transmissions to China.
These servers were apparently purchased by Apple, Amazon and around 30 other companies, and also used by the USA and United Kingdom government - which could have given Beijing unprecedented access to corporate and state secrets. "On this we can be very clear: Apple has never found malicious chips, "hardware manipulations" or vulnerabilities purposely planted in any server", it read. But the three companies featured in the story-Apple, Amazon, and Supermicro-have all issued broad and strongly worded denials.

"In the end, our internal investigations directly contradict every consequential assertion made in the article-some of which, we note, were based on a single anonymous source", Stathakopoulos wrote.
Turkish officials say Saudi writer killed
Khashoggi is a contributor to the The Washington Post and was twice editor-in-chief of Al-Watan, a Saudi newspaper. The Saudi journalist was at the consulate in order to obtain documents that certified his divorce.
The US Department of Homeland Security also chimed in, stating that it is in agreement with the United Kingdom on this and has "no reason to doubt the statements" from companies named in the initial story.
Amazon responded that "at no time, past or present, have we ever found any issues relating to modified hardware or malicious chips in Super Micro motherboards in any Elemental or Amazon systems". But it remains unclear whether this was a photograph of an actual board or a digital recreation.
Amnesty also criticizes the worldwide community for its "deafening silence on Saudi Arabia's crackdown on freedom of expression". Turkish officials have said authorities believe Khashoggi was killed at the consulate, allegations denied by Saudi Arabia.
