Telegram CEO Says DDoS Attack Against Messaging App Came Mostly From China and Was Timed to Hit During Hong Kong Protests

Encrypted messaging app Telegram was hit by a powerful DDoS attack from China as thousands of protestors surrounded Hong Kong government headquarters on Wednesday to protest legislation that would allow people to be extradited to mainland China to stand trial. The IP addresses of the attacker came mostly from China, Telegram CEO Pavel Durov said in a tweet. “Historically, all state actor-sized (attacks) we experienced coincided in time with protests in Hong Kong,” Durov said. “This case was not an exception.” Activists in Hong Kong and mainland China use Telegram to organize protests due to their belief in the encrypted, secure nature of the messaging service.

@durov: IP addresses coming mostly from China. Historically, all state actor-sized DDoS (200-400 Gb/s of junk) we experienced coincided in time with protests in Hong Kong (coordinated on @telegram). This case was not an exception.

Huawei Files for Summary Judgment in Its Lawsuit Seeking to Overturn Government Ban

Embattled Chinese telecom and tech giant Huawei has filed a motion asking a court in Plano, Texas, for summary judgment on whether a U.S. military spending provision that bars the government and its contractors from using Huawei equipment is constitutional. Huawei’s chief legal officer, Song Liuping, said at a news briefing that this “decision threatens to harm our customers in over 170 countries, including more than 3 billion customers who use Huawei products and services around the world.”  Huawei launched a lawsuit in March against the U.S. national defense law, calling the provision a “bill of attainder” that selectively punishes Huawei and violates its due process by presuming its guilt without a fair trial. This latest summary judgment motion seeks to speed up the legal process.
