A U.K.-based group of researchers recently launched a study to determine whether Chinese-manufactured microchips used in U.S. weapons, nuclear power plants and public transport could be loaded with malware capable of giving China backdoor access to systems critical to U.S. national security.
The University of Cambridge's Hardware Security Group has begun monitoring a wide range of microchips using a relatively new device -- known as a chip scanner -- to determine the extent to which unexpected destructive features are popping up on them.

Warned the group's security researcher Sergei Skorobogatov recently in his blog, according to the Epoch Times: “This backdoor access could be turned into an advanced Stuxnet weapon (malware) to attack potentially millions of systems. The scale and range of possible attacks has huge implications for national security and public infrastructure."
