Feds say don’t use Chinese hardware

  • The US Department of Homeland Security published a “business advisory” warning US customers against using hardware created or linked to Chinese companies
  • FBI is investigating more than 1,000 cases of data theft by Chinese government
  • Claims that Chinese designed products could contain backdoors or hidden data collection mechanisms accessible by Chinese hackers
  • “Any person or entity that chooses to procure data services and equipment from PRC-linked firms, or store data on software or equipment developed by such firms, should be aware of the economic, reputational, and, in certain instances, legal, risks associated with doing business with these firms.”
  • (Lexmark is a division of Ninestar of China)
