Cybersh** just got real

By Rich

Huawei not expecting growth in US this year due to national security concerns (The Verge).

U.S. to scrutinize IT system purchases with ties to China (PC World):

U.S. authorities will vet all IT system purchases made from the Commerce and Justice Departments, NASA, and the National Science Foundation, for possible security risks, according to section 516 of the new law.

“Cyber-espionage or sabotage” risks will be taken into account, along with the IT system being “produced, manufactured, or assembled” by companies that are owned, directed or funded by the Chinese government.

This is how you fight asymmetric espionage. Expect the consequences to continue until the attacks taper off to an acceptable level (yes, there is an acceptable level).
