In a broadcast a person spoke about the possibility, you buy a device and it will have built in surveillance software. A person could buy several hundred devices. Put surveillance or botnet software on them. Then sell them lowpriced. He spoke about governments doing it. A chinese government entity could order thousands of manipulated devices. Then have them sold low priced in nord america or europe acting as botnets. He mentioned, he had noticed chinese devices being that low priced, he would not rule out they were state paid surveillance or botnet devices targeting people in the west.
There is no protection against such practices?

If I buy a camera, usb memory stick, wifi card, they can have a chip with surveillance or botnet software and still run on debian main?
Thanks.
