Two very knowledgeable people unknown to each other have said that there
was a U.S. law passed in the 1990's that require all computers to
contain circuitry that permits the pc to be undetectedly accessed
remotely via network connections. One of them specifically mentioned
HP computers in this regard. Does anyone at all have any verifiable
info confirming this allegation?

(I know this sounds really paranoid and conspiratorial. Sorry about that.)

Thanks.
