Take this with the proverbial grain of salt, but Bloomberg has published a detailed investigative report today alleging that a list of U.S. Companies, including Amazon and Apple, suffered a security intrusion via hardware infiltration. This isn’t a hack in the software sense, it’s a result of literal physical modification to server motherboards at the time of manufacturing by subcontractors in China, allegedly coerced by operatives working for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army — making this a potentially state-backed attack.

For the full details, I encourage everyone to read Bloomberg’s full report. It isn’t particularly dense reading, and it does an excellent job of explaining the concepts required to understand how this happened. It also covers some of the details surrounding the multi-year history of the investigation on both the political and corporate level, as well as explaining some of the technical aspects behind the infiltration — though it isn’t exactly a white paper.
