Very concerning!  The tiny rogue chip was discovered because it was 
visually observed on the modified motherboard, but if they'd 
incorporated their tiny "spy silicon" into the package of another 
legitimate device on the motherboard, like introducing rogue memory 
chips or something into the supply chain it would presumably have been 
much harder to spot!?

Or maybe they already have....  :-O
