Intel, Qualcomm and Google are cutting off business with Huawei

It seems that USA-China trade war has really started now: America was the land of free trade … precisely until it is not anymore.

Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have reportedly moved to stop supplying Huawei. Google has also suspended business with Huawei in the wake of the ban.

According to Bloomberg, semiconductor companies Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx and Broadcom will no longer supply Huawei until further notice. Another report says that Google has suspended some trade with Huawei, leaving it with access only to the open-source version of Android.

I am a bit worried because I am just posting with a smart phone made by Huawei.

    Huawei Has Replaced Thousands of US-Banned Parts With Chinese Versions: Founder

    Huawei has replaced thousands of product components banned by the US with homegrown versions, its founder has said.

    Chinese technology giant Huawei has replaced thousands of product components banned by the United States with homegrown versions, its founder has said, according to a transcript of a recent speech released by a Shanghai university.

    A leading supplier of telecom gear, smartphones and other advanced equipment, Huawei has been repeatedly targeted by Washington in recent years over cybersecurity and espionage concerns.

    The administration of former president Donald Trump effectively barred American companies from doing business with the firm, and his successor Joe Biden has imposed further sanctions including a ban on sales of new Huawei equipment in the United States.

    The moves have forced the firm to find new ways to obtain semiconductors and other parts, with founder Ren Zhengfei saying Huawei has replaced more than 13,000 components with domestic versions in the past three years, according to the transcript posted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on Friday.

    Feds’ case against Huawei in cell networks tracked ‘unprofitable’ deals near US military bases / Federal agents expressed concerns that Huawei could intercept military communications

    An FBI investigation into Huawei reveals the Chinese telecom company had a pattern of installing equipment on cell towers near military bases in rural America — even if it wasn’t profitable to do so, according to a report from CNN. The unearthed investigation sheds some light on the US government’s motive behind the stalled “rip and replace” program that pushes for the removal of Huawei’s tech throughout the country.

    EU states told to restrict Huawei and ZTE from 5G networks ‘without delay’

    EU:lta uusi 5G-raportti – kielto Huawein ja ZTE:n verkkolaitteille

    Euroopan komissio on julkaissut jo toisen kerran 5G-verkkojen kyberturvallisuutta käsittelevän raportin, jonka täydennykseksi komissio antoi lisäksi uuden tiedonannon, jonka mukaan EU-maiden pitää kieltäytyä 5G-verkoissa kiinalaisten Huawein ja ZTE:n verkkolaitteista.

    EU:n jäsenmaat julkaisivat tänään Euroopan komission ja EU:n kyberturvallisuusviraston ENISAn tuella toisen edistymisraportin 5G-kyberturvallisuutta koskevan EU:n välineistön täytäntöönpanosta.

    Strategisten toimenpiteiden ja erityisesti suuririskisiä toimittajia koskevien rajoitusten käyttöönoton osalta edistymisraportissa todetaan, että 24 jäsenmaata on hyväksynyt tai valmistelee parhaillaan lainsäädäntötoimenpiteitä, joilla kansallisille viranomaisille annetaan valtuudet arvioida toimittajia ja asettaa rajoituksia.

    Raportin mukaan kymmenen EU:n jäsenmaata on asettanut rajoituksia ja kolme jäsenmaata on parhaillaan panemassa täytäntöön asiaa koskevaa kansallista lainsäädäntöä. EU-komission mukaan jäsenmaiden olisi pantava välineistö täytäntöön viipymättä.

    Komissio katsoo, että jäsenmaiden tekemät päätökset Huawein ja ZTE:n toiminnan rajoittamisesta tai sulkemisesta 5G-verkkojen ulkopuolelle ovat perusteltuja ja 5G-verkkoratkaisujen mukaisia. Komissio katsoo, että Huawei ja ZTE aiheuttavat olennaisesti suurempia riskejä kuin muut 5G-toimittajat.

    China Accuses U.S. of Hacking Huawei Servers as Far Back as 2009

    China accused the U.S. of infiltrating Huawei Technologies Co. servers beginning in 2009, part of a broad-based effort to steal data that culminated in tens of thousands of cyber-attacks against Chinese targets last year.

    The Tailored Access Operations unit of the National Security Agency carried out the attacks in 2009, which then continuously monitored the servers, China’s Ministry of State Security said in a post on its official WeChat account on Wednesday. It didn’t provide details of attacks since 2009.
