A collection of articles and links showing how America and American companies need to stop doing business with, or trusting, China with just about anything. That country, especially with its Communist government, is willing to do anything to steal government and corporate info to further their own goals. They do not live by the historical western values of Europe or the United States.

Meitu's photo-effects app tracks users
" Security researchers are always poking at popular apps, especially from
China, as developers there often create apps for jailbroken iPhones, but
have been the victim of a malware-infested version of Xcode.
This general interest was heightened on the Android side, as the app
requests a swath of permissions to access personal data. When researchers
went poking in the iOS version, they quickly found a host of red flags:
multiple analytics packages, which is software used to track usage and
users; requests for data that Apple forbids, some of the code for which was
taken directly from a popular iOS programming guide, which prominently notes
it shouldn't be used in production software; and attempts to extract a
unique phone identity, which is sketchy based on Apple's rules."
