Hardware Trojans in microchips: "The sky's the limit"

29.08.2023

They are secretly reading sensitive patient data or remotely switching off devices in intensive care units: while companies and private individuals are now well aware of software Trojans - never download an app or program without checking it - many companies or hospitals face a completely different threat. Namely, that the Trojans come into the house on the backs of the hardware.
