Here’s what’s happening: On May 7, hackers digitally seized about 10,000 Baltimore government computers and demanded around $100,000 worth in bitcoins to free them back up. It’s a so-called “ransomware” attack, where hackers deploy malicious software to block access to or take over a computer system until the owner of that system pays a ransom.

Gmail distinguishes between individual users and users in businesses and other organizations, requiring the latter to pay for the service. According to the Sun, which cited the mayor’s office, Google’s systems deemed the city officials to be part of an organization, and shut down the temporary accounts. Emails to the city health department, city council aides, and the mayor’s office bounced on Thursday, according to the report from the Sun.

In a statement, a Google spokesperson said it was the company’s security systems that had detected the creation of several accounts in a short period of time, and had automatically shut them down. “We have restored access to the Gmail accounts for the Baltimore city officials,” the spokesperson said. “Our automated security systems disabled the accounts due to the bulk creation of multiple consumer Gmail accounts from the same network.”

Chinese technology giant Huawei has enough inventory to sustain its smartphone and 5G networking equipment businesses for most of the rest of the year, according to brokerage and investment firm CLSA.

Amid elevated U.S.-China trade tensions, Washington last week added Huawei to a blacklist that curbs its ability to do business with American firms. That restriction was partially eased days later, in an effort to minimize disruption for the Chinese telecommunications giant’s partners, but most experts warn the company now faces significant uncertainty.

For now, Huawei’s smartphone business has five to six months’ worth of inventory, and its 5G networking equipment business has nine to 12 months’ worth of supplies, going by CLSA estimates, Sebastian Hou, investment analyst at CLSA, told CNBC on Friday.
