How might China react to the UK's Huawei decision?
China has repeatedly threatened to retaliate if the UK Government reversed its decision on Huawei, with relations already under strain after Boris Johnson offered citizenship to up to three million people from Hong Kong fleeing tough new security laws. The Chinese government has not hinted what measures are being considered, but ongoing diplomatic spats with British allies including the US, Australia and Canada reveal a wide-ranging playbook. A key factor is how quickly China might be willing to allow relations with the UK to deteriorate. In the US, Canada and Australia, political elements have been critical of China for several years, while the UK is only now starting to push back against China's ambitions, said Kitty Smyth, the founder of Jingpinou, a UK consultancy specialising in China. Therefore, China may be "more likely to want to build on those pockets of support, rather than erode all relationships with the UK entirely", she added. Still, some level of reprisal is likely to take place as Beijing's swagger has grown with its new "wolf warrior" style of diplomacy, taking a much harder line in defiance of what it views as the West trying to diminish its place on the world stage.

US brands Beijing's South China Sea claims illegal
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday the United States would treat Beijing's pursuit of resources in the dispute-rife South China Sea as illegal, ramping up support for Southeast Asian nations and triggering a furious response from Beijing. It was the latest forceful statement by President Donald Trump's administration to challenge China, which he has increasingly cast as an enemy ahead of November elections. "We are making clear: Beijing's claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them," Pompeo said in a statement.

US rejects nearly all Chinese claims in South China Sea
The Trump administration escalated its actions against China on Monday by stepping squarely into one of the most sensitive regional issues dividing them and rejecting outright nearly all of Beijing's significant maritime claims in the South China Sea. The administration presented the decision as an attempt to curb China's increasing assertiveness in the region with a commitment to recognizing international law. It also comes as President Donald Trump has come under growing fire for his response to the COVID-19 pandemic, stepped up criticism of China ahead of the 2020 election and sought to paint his expected Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, as weak on China.

German study finds no evidence coronavirus spreads in schools
Schools do not play a major role in spreading the coronavirus, according to the results of a German study released on Monday. The study, the largest carried out on schoolchildren and teachers in Germany, found traces of the virus in fewer than 1 per cent of teachers and children. Scientists from Dresden Technical University said they believe children may act as a "brake" on chains of infection. Prof Reinhard Berner, the head of pediatric medicine at Dresden University Hospital and leader of the study, said the results suggested the virus does not spread easily in schools. "It is rather the opposite," Prof Berner told a press conference. "Children act more as a brake on infection. Not every infection that reaches them is passed on." The study tested 2,045 children and teachers at 13 schools — including some where there have been cases of the virus. But scientists found antibodies in just 12 of those who took part. "This means that the degree of immunization in the group of study participants is well below 1 per cent and much lower then we expected," said Prof Berner. "This suggests schools have not developed into hotspots." The study was carried out at schools in three different districts in the region of Saxony.

Take your time, get it right for March Patch Tuesday
This is a big update to the Windows platform for the Microsoft March Patch Tuesday release cycle. Consisting of 115 patches, mostly to the Windows desktop, with almost all of the critical issues relating to browser-based scripting engine memory issues, this will be a difficult set of updates to release and manage.

The testing profile for the Windows desktop platform is very large, with a lower than usual exploitability/risk rating. For this month, we do not have any reports of publicly exploited or disclosed vulnerabilities (zero-days), so my recommendation is to take your time, test the changes to each platform, create a staged rollout plan and wait for future (potentially) imminent changes from Microsoft.
