Federal authorities are likely to be looking into security practices at Texas-based SolarWinds and would have secured evidence during a raid on their offices in the wake of the revelations about cyber attacks being launched using the company's supply chain as a vector, a senior infosec practitioner says.
Malicious attackers, who were exposed as having hit a number of government and private sector entities through software made by Texas firm SolarWinds, appear to have gained access to that firm's network as early as mid-2019, Yahoo! News claims.
Huawei Australia chief technology officer Dr David Soldani has warned that the latest sanctions on Huawei by the US Federal Government could break-up the unified global mobile technology standards that currently allow Australian tourists and business travellers to use their mobile devices anywhere in the world – and for global visitors to use their mobile devices when in Australia.

Security vendor Kaspersky Lab has reacted to reports that Australian retailer Harvey Norman will no longer be selling its products by saying it respects the decision of any business to sell and market products as it sees fit.
A former employee of the NSA claims Kaspersky Lab has provided misleading information while responding to a Bloomberg article that said emails it had obtained showed that the company had developed products for the Russian intelligence service FSB and also accompanied its agents on raids.
