This is the "chip" in question, according to the media. It has 6 paths I pressume. And they claim it has been used to open a "backdoor" in the servers. According to what I read, it would "read the memory at startup before the system fully boots up".

I have many questions about this... While the memory may still contain some data from the previous session... Im sure you need a bit more than 10 times the pins on this thing just to be able to read from the data bus, not to mention to operate the memory, which is a task perform by the north bridge upon request when fully operational.

As an admin of an instance: don’t put anything on here at any privacy level you wanna stay truly private. I won’t share anything, but don’t put that in my or anybody else’s hands. Use the Signal texting app for truly private correspondence.
