Kobe Steel expected to be indicted in data fabrication scandal



Kobe Steel expected to be indicted in data fabrication scandal

KYODO
Kobe Steel Ltd. is expected to be indicted over a data fabrication scandal that rocked the manufacturing industry, as police are set to refer the company to prosecutors possibly next week, sources familiar with the matter said Thursday.
The actions are likely to be taken against the firm for allegedly violating a law preventing unfair competition by systematically misrepresenting the quality of its products for decades.
The police are also considering referring to prosecutors the personnel involved in the alleged fabrication at three manufacturing plants.
While the special investigation team of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office is likely to indict Kobe Steel, it will also consider whether or not to prosecute individuals in connection with the data fabrication, according to the sources.
In June, the Metropolitan Police Department and the investigation team searched five company offices, including the Tokyo headquarters of Kobe Steel.
The investigators have examined materials seized in the raid and have questioned personnel concerned.
The steel supplier has admitted to falsifying inspection data for aluminum and copper products, which have been supplied to over 600 companies at home and abroad, and are used in cars, aircraft, space rockets and defense equipment.
The U.S. Justice Department has launched a separate probe into the case and asked Kobe Steel to submit documents linked to the scandal.
According to investigative sources, Kobe Steel has allegedly falsified quality data of products at the Moka Plant in Tochigi Prefecture, Chofu Works in Yamaguchi Prefecture, and Daian Works in Mie Prefecture, to make its products appear as if they met client specifications.
Based on the company’s final report released in March, the steelmaker altered data pertaining to strength and other attributes at 23 domestic and overseas plants, and the fabrication at the Moka Plant dates back to the 1970s or earlier.
Major carmakers, including Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co., have said they used Kobe Steel products in their vehicles, but announced earlier this year that the safety of their cars was not affected. Honda also confirmed the safety of its business jet aircraft.
Affected products have also been used by Central Japan Railway Co. for bullet trains and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. for Mitsubishi Regional Jet passenger planes. Mitsubishi Heavy also said it did not affect the safety of the planes.
JR Central has decided to start replacing around 1,100 aluminum parts on the bullet trains from February this year as those parts made by Kobe Steel did not meet the strength standard of the railway operator.
Customers in the United States and Canada have filed class-action lawsuits seeking compensation for the use of substandard products manufactured by the company.
Japan Inc. has recently been hit by numerous quality control scandals, also involving major automakers such as Nissan Motor Co. and Subaru Corp., which have damaged the reputation of the country’s manufacturing sector.

Apple's China-Friendly Censorship Caused an iPhone-Crashing Bug;三星智能手機出現詭異漏洞

劉宏恩......知名的《Wired》雜誌今天報導:蘋果為了討好中國,在iPhone系統裡面內建一些code讓手機可以無法顯示中華民國國旗,甚至讓某些使用者的手機一旦顯示中華民國國旗就系統當機。
蘋果被抓包這件事之後,悄悄地在昨天公布了一個修補patch,但絕口不提為什麼和憑什麼它可以在iOS系統內建這樣的code。




對比Amazon 公司的智能喇叭的類似詭異漏洞

三星智能手機出現詭異漏洞


這簡直是不可思議的事情:你的智能手機悄悄地向你的聯繫人發送圖片。三星公司正在對用戶的相關投訴進行調查。
(德國之聲中文網)對於許多智能手機的用戶來說,這無疑是場惡夢:當你熟睡之際,手機自動將你收藏的照片發送給隨機選擇的聯繫人。幾位三星手機的用戶稱他們都有了這樣的經歷。據美國媒體"Gizmodo"報導,在Reddit在線平台以及三星官方論壇上,許多用戶已經投訴了這種怪異功能。


受影響的是使用了美國電信T-Mobile和AT&T網絡的三星Galaxy S9、Galaxy S9 Plus和Galaxy Note 8型號智能手機。
據稱出現這種狀況的原因是因為三星短信應用程序Messages的一個所謂的漏洞,造成手機自動通過短信發送隨機照片。而用戶在聯繫人做出相應回复前都毫不知情。一位用戶甚至說,一夜之間他的整個圖片集被發送給他的伴侶。
據美國媒體"Gizmodo"報導,三星公司表示已經收到反饋並要求技術人員查找原因堵住漏洞。
門戶網站建議用戶採取兩種保護措施:暫時關閉Messages使用手機存儲內容的權限,或者使用其它短信應用。
