US considers blocking Chinese nationals from hacking conferences

US has already decided to charge five Chinese officials who have been accused of stealing trade secrets and now they are ready to take further action. According to a report from Reuters, the US government is going to impose visa restrictions on Chinese computer experts. This is going to stop them from attending the high-profile Def Con and Black Hat hacking conferences which are scheduled to take place in August.

Def Con has no Chinese speaker on their schedule but Black Hat on the other hand currently has three Chinese speakers lined up to present at the event. This move by the US government is said to be a greater plan to curb Chinese cyber espionage since cybercriminals were said to have infiltrated six American private-sector companies to help give Chinese state-owned firms a competitive advantage.

Both the organizers of the upcoming conferences were unaware of the restriction imposed by the US government but Black Hat founder Jeff Moss did note on Twitter that such actions would not help build a "positive community."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
