This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Tiny Chips Can Hack Big – How Mellanox NICs and SmartNICs Can Help Secure Your Data Center
Cyberattacks are gaining in complexity and sophistication. Recent attacks such as Throwhammer, Nethammer, NetSpectre, Faxploit, and Malware Guard Extension
attest to the increasingly complex methods devised by hackers to take
control over remote networks and to spread malware. Today’s cyber
reality surpasses by far the fertile imagination of Hollywood cyber
fiction films. Another hacking invention was recently exposed in Bloomberg
Businessweek’s “Big Hack” news story (published on October 2018), which
described how a maliciously planted tiny chip on a server board can pose
serious security risks to organizations. The information revealed in
that story has managed to disturb the waters in the tech and security
industries and communities, as it described alleged infiltrations of
data centers of some major corporate and governmental organizations.
