Deleting the Killer Infiltration App

Other countries are joining America in worrying about the national security threats posed by Chinese electronics:

The U.S. has taken a series of actions aimed at Huawei, the world’s biggest supplier of wireless equipment and No. 3 vendor of smartphones. The Shenzhen-based company has been effectively shut out of the U.S. telecom market since a 2012 congressional report said its equipment could be used for spying.

I bet you thought I was paranoid over a decade ago worrying about what China might do with subverted electronics to threaten our fleet?

I moved from worrying about a smuggled device to consumer electronics.

Now a number of countries are worried about Chinese consumer electronics. And you thought Facebook was bad?
