well, it's not trusted. it kinda depends if you're important geopolitically or scientifically. in my old job with an electrical utility for the city, you were not allowed to use chinasoft. it allows china to hack the city utility.If you use it, why uninstall it? There's absolutely no need treat all Chinese software with suspicion, particularity not for software like this that is widely used and trusted.
While I know it is safe and trustworthy, I just scanned WiseCare365.exe at VirusTotal and it was not detected by any antivirus. This is a good indication that it is not malicious.
The latest attack on U.S. critical infrastructure is likely the work of China's notorious APT10.
why would this be important? a couple months ago israel's water utility was hacked and the hacker tried to add a lethal dose of chemicals to the water, which would have poisoned the cities inhabitants. they caught it in time and stopped it. days later, iran has several mysterious explosions: likely israeli retaliation. whatever transpired, a foreign nation hacked into their utility and tried to kill people. so if a nation is hostile and lawless, you likely shouldn't assist them by using their wares. i doubt hong kong independence protesters use chinasoft. if they do, the police will show up at their door at night and they'll disappear.
anyway, this is likely how china is hacking into all the various institutions, educational, utilities, military, governmental, and businesses. they give you shiny trojan horses that have nice free utilities (many which are likely reverse-engineered and modified from other law-abiding companies), but give them access to your data which gives access to the municipal utilities. most of us are irrelevant to them so the free soft seems good. but there was an article i was reading the other day about china social media making a large database on usa teens, so that in the future, if someone becomes important or runs for office, they would have a lot of potentially incriminating information to blackmail him/her. i think it was a tiktok article.
The report comes at a time when US-China relations are tense.
The US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a "public service announcement" Wednesday warning that China is likely launching cyberattacks to steal coronavirus data related to vaccines and treatments from US research institutions and pharmaceutical companies, calling it a...
