A large number of laboratory tests showed the presence of malicious Lenovo hardware and loopholes, which are vulnerable to intruders' remote control. Computer professionals have pointed out this is a dirty trick the Communist Party (CCP) uses to monitor its people and steal Western state secrets. On July 27 & 29, Australian Financial Review cited British and Australian defense insider information. Since 2000, the five eyes of intelligence, the US, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, issued a written ban on the use of Lenovo computers in national intelligence and defense sector. Tests proved that Lenovo computer's hard disk has a "back door," and the chip contains firmware loopholes which could be attacked. Dr. Zhang Xinyu from China, founder of Freedom of Information Worldwide: "If you want to have a factory in China to manufacture machines, including mobile phones and computers, you have to add a back door—the so-called hacker—developed by the government. It aims to monitor everyone. If Legend computers are made in China, these things will surely be added because they want to control the world." An Australian Defense expert said the Ministry of Defense extensively used IBM computers, but they stopped using them in 2006, after Legend acquired IBM's PC division. This is consistent with the decision of the US State Department. Mainly they worry about Legend, with a "Chinese official background," being a threat to the country's security. Java Engineer Chen Shuai: "In 2005, the acquisition of PC from IBM was an act of the CCP's United Front. They wanted to monitor all Chinese people and dissidents as well as to understand some foreign information and secrets from foreign states, so they took Chinese brand Legend and hooked on to IBM." According to reports, the British intelligence agency played a leading role in Legend product research. Experts found that Legend circuits were maliciously modified, beyond typical vulnerabilities, to allow others to access a user's computer. This carefully designed hardware back door is often hard to monitor. Chen Shuai: "In order to avoid its reputation being affected, the back door is set at the bottom of a computer. As computer technology is concerned, things at the bottom will be in the wafer or wafer group, bypassing most of software testings and vendors. If someone discovers it, the CCP may say, 'this is our immaturity in terms of technology, and there are loopholes'. But, they are using it as an excuse to reach their monitoring and stealing purposes." IT experts described Legend's practice as "very dirty and hidden." Ordinary people in everyday use would not realize their computers have been completely compromised. If authorities want to filter the content, the computer's IP will immediately transmit to the network above. Thus, a computer will be hacked into and the desirable information obtained. They do this to all Chinese dissidents, all state departments and commercial organizations overseas. Australian national network has excluded Huawei Technologies from China because of security issues. Meanwhile, General Hayden, former director of the CIA and the National Security Agency, also recently pointed out the mounting evidence that Huawei Technologies placed Trojans in foreign countries to facilitate eavesdropping and destruction. Currently, more and more countries are beginning to investigate Huawei Technologies. 《神韵》2013世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/
