Default DHS believes Chinese made drones aka DJI drones

are some how stealing data and reporting it back to the Chinese government

maybe DHS is the Fed Department that shuts down the drone multi rotors....

If it came from a reputable news outlet it may be somewhat believable , but coming from CNN , no way would I be getting my dander up over it . Yes indeed I don't trust any foreign government's motives and intents , but since both CNN and FOX news deal in sensationalism first and facts are few and far between I'll call this nothing but an unfounded rumor at best .

CNN = commie news network
FOX = FAUX news

When I see the story coming from other than the filthy mouthpieces of the extreme Left or extreme Right (Who are both collectively doing FAR more damage to our country than the Chinese or Russians ever could) then and only then will I consider taking up the torches & pitchforks .....

This is not new. A few months ago I received a security alert at work advising all government agencies and contractors to discontinue the use of DJII products. It appeared that when software upgrades were performed the usage logs were being downloaded to DJII servers and they were suspected of sharing the information to the Chinese government.
