And so what? What do we do now?

The problem was grown to a ridiculous size, it's much worse then we ever imagined.

If you are a developer, create or use software, you will be affected by this, there is a war going on, a cyber war.

Things have changed

Before, we had people using social engineering to get you to do something, now they just infiltrate in your network and hardware, really, any hardware and watch you, steal your information and manipulate you to do what they want. This includes governmental platforms, they infiltrate in old and brand new infrastructures from the ground up.

Where does it start?

Hackers are getting into the supply chain, when you buy anything with a chip, it might have been hacked during its production stage, by an infiltrated factory employee, so you get a brand new device that has already been hacked.
