IMP3Net has the longest coverage [Google Translate]. Most of it reiterates what Teclast sent out over Weibo.

ZOL has shorter coverage [Google Translate].

PadNews doesn’t even try [Google Translate].

Spies Everywhere

Regin: Top-tier espionage tool enables stealthy surveillance

This all reminds me of that scene in Batman:

INT. AXIS CHEMICAL – FILE ROOM – NIGHT

SPARKS FLY. A SAFECRACKER, in welder’s mask, trains a
blowtorch on the office safe. Behind him, Jack’s HOODS
are at work on the filing cabinets. Jack stands watch-
ing, squinting through the fumes. He holds a silk
handkerchief over his nose and mouth.

The SAFECRACKER kills his blowtorch and opens the metal
door of the safe, giving Jack a good look inside:

SAFECRACKER
Empty.

JACK shakes his head: they’ve been set up. A SIREN
blares outside.

JACK
We’ve been ratted out here, boys.

I really wonder about China-made tech now too …

… anything lurking in those phones and tablets that their makers don’t know about?
