[Reuters] U.S. Senator Warren urges Amazon breakup, India retailers want probe after Reuters report UGN Security 10/14/21 04:43 PM

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren called for breaking up Amazon.com Inc and Indian retailers demanded a government probe of the company after a Reuters investigation showed the e-commerce giant had copied products and rigged search results in India.





The Reuters report, reviewing thousands of internal Amazon documents, found that the U.S. company ran a systematic campaign of creating knockoffs and manipulating search results to boost its own private brands in India, one of the company’s largest growth markets. It also showed that, at least in India, manipulating search results to favor Amazon’s products, as well as copying other sellers’ goods, were part of a formal strategy at Amazon - and that at least two senior executives had reviewed it.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports wide-ranging SolarWinds probe sparks fear in Corporate America UGN Security 09/10/21 01:21 PM

Reuters reported exclusively that a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into the SolarWinds Russian hacking operation has dozens of corporate executives fearful that information unearthed in the expanding probe will expose them to liability. People familiar with the inquiry say the requests may reveal numerous unreported cyber incidents unrelated to the Russian espionage campaign, giving the SEC a rare level of insight into previously unknown incidents that the companies likely never intended to disclose.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Amazon considers more proactive approach to determining what belongs on its cloud service UGN Security 09/05/21 06:02 PM

Reuters revealed that Amazon.com Inc plans to take a more proactive approach to determine what types of content violate its cloud service policies, such as rules against promoting violence, and enforce its removal. According to a Reuters source, over the coming months, Amazon will expand the Trust & Safety team at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) division and hire a small group of people to develop expertise and work with outside researchers to monitor for future threats - a move that could turn Amazon into one of the world’s most powerful arbiters of content allowed on the internet and is likely to renew debate about how much power tech companies should have to restrict free speech.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports Ericsson CEO to double down on China as 5G tussle rumbles on UGN Security 09/03/21 06:00 PM

In an interview with Reuters, Ericsson’s top executive Borje Ekholm vowed to double down on efforts to regain market share lost in China after Sweden blocked Chinese suppliers from its 5G roll-out, a move that antagonized Beijing and has hit the equipment maker’s business. China accounted for about 10% of Ericsson’s revenue last year, but that fell sharply after the company’s home country of Sweden banned Huawei from its 5G networks, citing security risks – a charge that Huawei has strongly denied.

[Reuters] Reuters first to report Tokyo ready to back Western Digital-Kioxia deal if key tech stays in Japan UGN Security 09/03/21 05:57 PM

Reuters was first to report that Japan’s trade ministry is ready to back Western Digital’s bid to merge with memory chipmaker Kioxia provided that control of cutting-edge technology stays in Japan. The tie-up could give Japan greater leverage in geopolitical rivalries increasingly dominated by technology, including over shortages of chips. It could also help Japan forge deeper semiconductor industry ties with its U.S. ally, a commitment that President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Suga made in April.

[Reuters] YouTube restores channel after Reuters inquiry into removal of Xinjiang videos UGN Security 06/25/21 05:59 PM

Reuters exclusively reported that a human rights group which had attracted millions of views on YouTube to testimonies from people who say their families have disappeared in China’s Xinjiang region is moving its videos to little-known service Odysee after some were taken down by the Google-owned streaming giant. Atajurt Kazakh Human Rights’ channel has published nearly 11,000 videos on YouTube totaling over 120 million views since 2017, thousands of which feature people speaking to camera about relatives they say have disappeared without a trace in China’s Xinjiang region, where UN experts and rights groups estimate over a million people have been detained in recent years. The channel was blocked on June 15.





Following inquiries from Reuters as to why the channel was removed, YouTube restored it, explaining that it had received multiple so-called ‘strikes’ for videos which contained people holding up ID cards to prove they were related to the missing, violating a YouTube policy which prohibits personally identifiable information from appearing in its content. They reinstated the channel on June 18 but asked Atajurt to blur the IDs.
