Apple Deny Bloomberg Claims, Says 'Never Found Malicious Chips In Our Servers'

(RTTNews) - Apple has denied a Bloomberg BusinessWeek report's claim that Chinese spies were able to secretly implant chips in its servers.

"Apple has never found malicious chips, "hardware manipulations" or vulnerabilities purposely planted in any server. Apple never had any contact with the FBI or any other agency about such an incident. We are not aware of any investigation by the FBI, nor are our contacts in law enforcement," the Cupertino, California-based tech giant said in a detailed statement.

The iPhone maker said that over the course of the past year, Bloomberg had contacted the company multiple times with claims of an alleged security incident at Apple. However, each time the company conducted rigorous internal investigations based on their inquiries and each time found absolutely no evidence to support any of them.

Apple said it repeatedly and consistently offered factual responses, on the record, refuting virtually every aspect of Bloomberg's story relating to Apple.

Apple was responding to a report on latest Bloomberg Businessweek that reported Apple found "malicious chips" in servers on its network in 2015. Bloomberg BusinessWeek had reported data center hardware used by Apple and Amazon Web Services, and provided by server company Super Micro, was under surveillance by the Chinese government.

Amazon has also refuted those claims.

AAPL closed Thursday's trading at $227.99, down $4.08 or 1.76%, on the Nasdaq. The stock, however, gained $0.06 or 0.03% in the after-hours trade.
