The Vulture sums up my thoughts on the Bloomberg's article ... not everyone is honest, including Bloomberg. Food for thought: If it is so brazen, why no one else spots it in the wild? https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/10/04/supermicro_bloomberg/

I'm not entirely convinced of who is telling the truth and who is misleading us, but it's not implausible that this would go undetected in most places. If it happened, then:
1. It was likely a targeted operation.
2. It was affecting a small number of servers.
3. It was undetectable unless you were looking for it and had the blueprints for the motherboard.
