Submission + - Seagate to be sold to Chinese tech company

The offer causes concern among government officials because, even though disk drives are not export-controlled technology, there is fear that hard disks and drivers may be modified to include backdoors. This is of particular importance as Seagate manufactures harddisks with builtin encryption.
