Yeah, I read about this a couple of weeks ago. The article I read gave the attack vectors, which interest me. If an article doesn't include the attack vectors, it's a waste of my time. Nothing to see here - keep moving. But, I digress.

I shucked it off, because you need physical access to the machine. What are the chances, you know?

Then, I read this, last week, and a bell went off:

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-04/feds-investigating-whether-chinese-spy-mar-lago-connected-cindy-yang

Boom! Chinese spy attempting to get physical access to Trump's computers at Mar-A-Lago.

She paid $10,000 to obtain an invite from a Chinese businessman. The thing that blew her cover was, she asked security which way it was to the pool. She said she wanted to go swimming... but, they noticed she didn't have a swimsuit. Hello!?!?

Bwahahahahahahaha! Probably worked at Intel, too  :D
