U.S. warns Canada on Huawei

A top White House official has warned Canadians against allowing China-based Huawei to help in building out Canada’s next generation 5G telecommunications networks. “The technology allows China to put together profiles of the most intimate details, intimate personal details, of every single man, woman and child in China,” said national security adviser Robert O’Brien. O’Brien hinted that Canadian-U.S. intelligence-sharing could be affected if Canada follows through with allowing Huawei to help build out its 5G networks. The warning comes amid a broader Trump administration effort to limit Huawei’s market power in the U.S. and abroad over national security concerns. Shannon Vavra has more details.

Europe scrubs Islamic State group from social media

Europol said it worked with internet companies like Google and Twitter to remove posts generated by the Islamic State terrorist group. Authorities said they eliminated 26,000 pieces of content from several sites, such as videos, social media accounts and communication channels. Police have described the takedown as a major blow to the extremist’s radicalization efforts. Police in Spain’s Canary Islands also arrested one suspect accused of being “part of the core disseminators” of the group’s recruitment and radicalization efforts. The Islamic State is effectively “not present on the internet anymore,” said one Belgian federal prosecutor. Jeff Stone has the news.

Sounding the ransomware alarm...again

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards on Friday declared a statewide emergency following a ransomware attack last week that prompted officials to temporarily deactivate government websites and other digital services. It was the second such order he’s given in less than six months, following an emergency statement he issued in July when several school districts were hit with ransomware. The attack caused the Office of Motor Vehicles locations across Louisiana to remain closed for several days. StateScoop's Benjamin Freed has the story.
