      I'm in the industry and that company mentioned is real, facts are real too. Owned by Chinese government. Scary stuff.

        Nothing more than the article stated. Just doesn't seem like we have a lot of oversight on these things.

        Different story when it comes to cyber stuff unfortunately.

        IBM sold it's computer line to Lenovo in 2005. Can you think of a computer or camera brand that is not made in China or Taiwan?

          These stories crack me up. Some duffus sees a technical capability but has no clue to the logistics required to support it.

          There are millions of these cameras, many of them in use 24 hours a day, which means hundreds of millions of hours of video coming in every single day. There's just no way in Hell to review all of that even with the division-sized hacking groups the Chinese military use. It's the virtual situation of trying to drink from a fire hose.

            Some of these are in government buildings and military bases. What about power stations? Attack on the power grid, no power = chaos.

            Once they see one of you undress in front of the camera they'll block your IP address and drink to forget you.

              Laugh all you like, but the stories are real. Nobody would review zillions of hours of video to find the needle in the haystack. You do targeted surveillance.

              Kaspersky is another example. Founded by former FSB agents, surely no possible problems there.

              If you think that foreign governments aren't leveraging the fact that their companies can get cheap hardware/software in the hands of millions/billions of people, I have a bridge to sell you.

                Some visitors from the Chinese forensics lab visited our state lab and gave us some thumb drives. Our PC forensics guys took custody of all of them and every one had a back door bug on it.
