FCC Issues Final Orders Declaring Huawei, ZTE National Security Threats

https://nationandstate.com/2020/06/30/fcc-issues-final-orders-declaring-huawei-zte-national-security-threats/

The U.S. telecommunications regulator voted in November 5-0 to issue the declaration and proposed requiring rural carriers to remove and replace equipment from the two Chinese companies from existing U.S. networks. “We cannot and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit network vulnerabilities and compromise our critical communications infrastructure,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement Tuesday.

Huawei and ZTE did not immediately respond to requests for comment but have previously sharply criticized the FCC’s actions.

FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks said on Tuesday that “untrustworthy equipment” remains in place in U.S. networks and said the U.S. Congress must allocate funding for replacements.

In May 2019, Trump signed an executive order declaring a national emergency and barring U.S. companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies posing a national security risk. The Trump administration also added Huawei to its trade blacklist last year.

Ban on Chinese apps surprises India content makers – BBC News

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-53232486

What prompted the ban?

India’s Ministry of Information Technology has said the ban was the result of
“many complaints from various sources” about apps that were “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorised manner”.

… US senators have even called for an investigation into TikTok, which fiercely rejects such claims.

The Indian government said in its statement that, “the
compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures”.

… In 2017, Alibaba’s UC Browser had come under the scanner for allegedly leaking mobile data of Indian users. And that year, India’s defence ministry asked all armed personnel and officers to uninstall 42 Chinese apps it classified as “spyware”, according to media reports.

Australians balk as 7-Eleven rolls out facial recognition nationwide – Wake Up To The Truth

https://jonsnewplace.wordpress.com/2020/06/23/australians-balk-as-7-eleven-rolls-out-facial-recognition-nationwide/


Convenience store chain 7-Eleven is debuting facial recognition across all 700 Australian locations, supposedly for no other purpose than to avoid customers “gaming” their feedback system. Aussies aren’t buying it – literally.

A 7-Eleven spokesperson told Australian outlet iTnews that the ominous signs popping up in store windows over the past few weeks – “Site is under constant video surveillance. By entering the store you consent to facial recognition cameras capturing and storing your image” – refer solely to the use of the chain’s new Rate It customer feedback tablets.

If you downloaded the latest iOS update back in May, and any
following updates, then congratulations…your COVID-19 infection status
will likely soon be tracked by state health officials as part of each
state’s contact tracing efforts.

Many iPhone users across the US have over the past few days started
to notice a new setting under the “privacy” subtab of the iPhone health
app. It looks like this, and allows users to “toggle on” COVID-19
exposure logging.

It’s all thanks to the latest update of Apple’s iOS operating system for iPhone, iOS13.5.
