While its the major defense programs and operations that have
dominated the headlines in the escalating cyber warfare standoff
between the U.S. and its adversaries - China and Russia in particular,
a new report issued by the U.S. military's Inspector General has
highlighted the "micro-purchases" of everyday IT equipment as a
serious risk. In particular, the report focuses on the continued

not been removed from DOD procurement lists - this includes Chinese
