China bars Micron chips as geopolitical talk heat up

China announced that products made by US chipmaker MicronTechnology have failed to pass a cybersecurity review, stoking geopolitical tensions.

China’s government told users of sensitive computer equipment they must stop buying products from Micron, the biggest US memory chipmaker.

Micron, China says, had failed a network security review announced last month, meaning operators of key infrastructure are now barred from buying from the company.

Announcing the move, the CyberspaceAdministration of China (CAC) said: “The review found that Micron’s products have serious network security risks, which pose significant security risks to China’s critical information infrastructure supply chain, affecting China’s national security.”
