Can someone clarify something?

It seems to be hidden in SPI flash storage soldered to the MB...it seems to be targeting charities and diplomats.

So am I missing something, e.g. these are being shipped pre-hacked knowing their destination? Or is it a scatter gun approach it just hopes it gets to these?

Or is it simply some mb company has a dodgy firmware image?
