    "Former Twitter employees charged with spying for Saudi Arabia by digging into the accounts of kingdom critics

    The Justice Department has charged two former Twitter employees with spying for Saudi Arabia in a case that raises concerns about the ability of Silicon Valley to protect the private information of dissidents and other users from repressive governments. The charges, unveiled Wednesday in San Francisco, came a day after the arrest of one of the former Twitter employees,....

    The second former Twitter employee ... was accused of accessing the personal information of more than 6,000 Twitter accounts in 2015 on behalf of Saudi Arabia. ...

    'The criminal complaint unsealed today alleges that Saudi agents mined Twitter’s internal systems for personal information about known Saudi critics and thousands of other Twitter users,' said U.S. Attorney David L. Anderson. 'We will not allow U.S. companies or U.S. technology to become tools of foreign repression in violation of U.S. law.'..."

    New York company accused of selling Chinese-made security equipment relabeled as American made to U.S. military .

    According to the criminal complaint, since 2006, Aventura Technologies operated a scheme where over 1,000 shipments of network security software and hardware from China were relabeled as American and then sold to the federal government. That includes surveillance systems bought by the U.S. Army, Air Force, Department of Energy and other U.S. agencies. The company allegedly made nearly $90 million.

    U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue called the fraud scheme a national security threat.

    'Aventura not only defrauded its customers, but also exposed them to serious known cyber-security risks, and created a channel by which foreign adversaries and other actors could potentially access some of our governments' most sensitive facilities and computer networks,'
