China pushing banks to remove IBM servers in spy dispute-Bloomberg


(Reuters) – The Chinese government is pushing domestic banks to remove high-end servers made by International Business Machines Corp and replace them with a local brand, the latest move by Beijing over U.S. spying claims, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday. The news comes a day after China accused the United States of unscrupulous cyber surveillance that included large-scale computer attacks against the Chinese government and Chinese companies. Government agencies, including the Peoples Bank of China [CNBNK.UL] and the Ministry of Finance, are reviewing whether Chinese commercial banks reliance on the IBM servers compromises the countrys financial security, the report said citing people familiar with the matter. A spokesman at the National Development and Reform Commission said the countrys top economic planner has not told companies to change their IBM servers, nor received orders from higher levels of the government to do so.
