NSA Spying Through Routers Made in U.S. http://b4in.org/p3h1

According to recent reports the NSA intercepts routers exported by American companies, “upgrading” them before they’re distributed abroad.

“They implant back doors in the routers’ software or firmware, allowing them to connect to the network remotely or track communication going through that network,” this according to Amir Carmi from ComSecure, ESET’s representative in Israel.

 “All the traffic goes through the router or the firewall and they can be used to monitor incoming and outgoing data. Some of today’s more advanced tools can filter out non-essential information and only provide the most “interesting” finds.”

It’s important to note that the NSA didn’t exactly invent the wheel here. The Chinese also use similar techniques, through internet technologies and infrastructure exported by Chinese companies. “Over the last few years this phenomenon has become more and more common.

This time it’s the NSA, but more than 90% of the hardware is made in China – so it’s not just the NSA. There’s a very real possibility that the Chinese are doing the same. It’s even been proven a few of times,” explained Carmi.

Over the last few months various Israeli groups have been reluctant to use computers and communications equipment with Chinese components. This started after several intelligence organizations stated that the Chinese might be designing their equipment – the same systems they provide to American manufacturers – so that they could access information passing through them at a later date.

Israeli sources added that currently computers, routers and other equipment or components made in China are being checked, in order to prevent the possibility of the Chinese cyber corps infiltrating systems used by the Israeli defense establishment.

They do cost more, but you're paying for better hardware. If you tried to build a machine with the exact same specs (including using scsi harddrives, etc) you would probably end up paying the same. Or that's how it used to be years ago when I had a Mac. BTW, it was OSX that got me interested in Linux. ;)

Yep, XP gang, this is just one more quality version of a Linux Operating System that is free to you.  Check them out.  This one is from the USA in Texas.  Visit web sites.   Ask questions.   I have been using Linux for over 10 years now and am no geek, just an average user and most systems are quite easy to adopt.
