Invasion of the Hardware Snatchers: Cloned Electronics Pollute the Market

In February 2014, the FBI charged a Florida man, Marc Heera, with selling a cloned version of the Hondata s300, a plug-in module for the engine computer that reads data from sensors in Honda cars and automatically adjusts the air-fuel mixture, idle speed, and other factors to improve performance. The plug-in also allows users to monitor the engine via Bluetooth and make their own adjustments. The clones certainly looked like the genuine product, but in fact they contained circuit boards that had likely been built in China, according to designs Heera had obtained through reverse engineering. Honda warned that cars using the counterfeits exhibited a number of problems, including random limits on engine rpm and, occasionally, failure to start. Devices that connect to an engine control unit (ECU) present particular safety concerns; researchers have demonstrated that, through ECU access, they could hijack a car’s brakes and steering. It’s not just car parts that are being cloned; network routers and parts for routers are also popular targets for cloners. That may not sound particularly scary until you consider that a hacker who has control of a cloned router can then intercept or red...

14,000 likely to lose jobs as owners of Oriental Hotel set to leave Nigeria

Indications emerged on Thursday that the number of job loss in Nigeria in 2019 may raise by over 14,000. This is because owners of the popular Oriental Hotel in Lagos, Western Metal Products Company Limited (WEMPCO) Group, are planning to leave the country after over four decades doing business in the Africa’s largest economy. Few days ago, there were reports that WEMPCO was offering to sell its flagship hospitality business, Oriental Hotel for $250 million (about N90 billion). According to a report by Business Day, WEMPCO wants to sell the company because of some issues, including unfavourable business environment, corporate governance, debts and others. It was reported that the group has fallen on hard times and is considering an exit from Nigeria along with its steel plant, which has 700,000 tonnes-capacity and employs about 14,000 people, mostly Nigerians. “When deep, long-term guys like these are exiting, then it is a very worrying sign. People like these are not supposed to exit,” an economic analyst, who asked not to be quoted, said. Founded by Lewis Tung and his brother Robert Tung, WEMPCO Group has been in Nigeria for over 40 years with established manufacturing compan...
