The Navy Bought 59,000 Fake Chinese Microchips

Wow, you have to be stupid or have some huge brass balls to sell fake processors to the U.S. Navy. It's not like they don't know where they bought them....or how to find you. eek! Thanks to [H] forum member "fright" for the link.

Last year, the U.S. Navy bought 59,000 microchips for use in everything from missiles to transponders and all of them turned out to be counterfeits from China. The chips weren't only low-quality fakes, they had been made with a "back-door" and could have been remotely shut down at any time.
