I admit to being unfamiliar with some of the tech matters,

but I would think the effing NAVY would be a bit careful about the chips it buys...
Wired reports 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.

If left undiscovered the result could have rendered useless U.S. missiles and killed the signal from aircraft that tells everyone whether it's friend or foe.
