I'm providing a couple of link s below to recent articles on recently discovered computer hardware attack. The article says "The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America's technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources."… and … "Nested on the servers' motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn't part of the boards' original design. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shudder through the intelligence community. Elemental's servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA's drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships."

Is there any more information available on the AMRDEC's MORE tool posted on Sep 17? I was wondering if other DOD agencies would be able to utilize this tool for their DMSMS monitoring. I couldn't find any information on how to get in contact with the program office or how to request access to the tool.
