Military Warns Lenovo Poses Cyber Spy Threat

“The Pentagon’s Joint Staff recently warned against using equipment made by China’s Lenovo computer manufacturer amid concerns about cyber spying against Pentagon networks, according to defense officials.

A recent internal report produced by the J-2 intelligence directorate stated that cyber security officials are concerned that Lenovo computers and handheld devices could introduce compromised hardware into the Defense Department supply chain, posing cyber espionage risks, said officials familiar with the report. The ‘supply chain’ is how the Pentagon refers to its global network of suppliers that provide key components for weapons and other military systems.
