US has filed charges against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. Here's what the
case could mean for the future of both the tech company and US-China
relations. the CNN link at bottom goes to a video that is not long maybe 5 minutes tops.
Another thing is...
Washington (CNN)The US has underscored to Germany its threat to limit intelligence sharing with countries that use Chinese tech giant Huawei to build their 5G communications networks.
The US has to worry about just as much spyware from other countries like Russia. Viruses, Trojans, and deeply embedded spyware has affected all of our Technology for some years now. We have known about this stuff in tech coming out of China and several other places. It's laptops, TVs, cellphones, even in kids toys and anything in China that has a processor, flash drive, or a hard drive in it. It's all countries receiving, or they are sending. The US up until now has done nothing but rely on anti-Trojan, Antivirus, and anti-spyware software. Now all of the sudden they care. Should we be mad that the US waited until now to do this? They could of acted more responsibly sooner which is true. But... Hell no just because we got it wrong doesn't mean we can't fix it now. How else are we going to stop other Nations if we are not tough with them? I welcome this, but I caution this too because the US has been accused of the very same things in software that was forced to have back doors. Does this mean no more back doors? What about the NSA crap of collecting data? Word is they are still doing it.
Also of note is China's Lenovo Computers shipped to the US. The US caught this company doing the same thing that Huawei did. The thing is that Lenovo computers had so much spyware in it that they had to release an computer OS and Hardware update in order to comply. Before you go say, "whew at least they fixed it." Well they did, but you need to know that many Government offices, hospitals, doctors, Insurance companies use this brand because it is so cheap. So how much info did they loose? and the burning question is, 'why didn't we see a slew of companies come forward stating they were compromised and their data was probably stolen? We didn't hear a word out of anyone during the Lenovo breach. That... is very disappointing AND DISTURBING.
The US has underscored to Germany its threat to limit intelligence
sharing with countries that use Chinese tech giant Huawei to build their
5G communications networks. US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell sent a letter to the German
government last week threatening to curtail German access to US
intelligence if Berlin decides to issue contracts to Huawei, according
to a US official familiar with the matter.
