Synergy Communications is acquiring its Vodacom Business Africa operations in Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria and Zambia. The other two deals each focus on one market, with Vodafone Ghana acquiring its enterprise operations in that country and Internet Technologies Angola buying up Vodacom’s Angolan assets and business.

Neues Kryptogeld Libra: Facebook plant die Weltwährung | heise online
Facebook will die Finanzwelt umkrempeln: Das Online-Netzwerk hat eine neue globale Währung erfunden. Das Digitalgeld mit dem Namen Libra basiert ähnlich wie der Bitcoin auf der sogenannten Blockchain-Technologie, soll aber ohne Kursschwankungen auskommen. Facebook werde dabei auch auf Datenschutz achten, versicherte der für das Projekt zuständige Manager David Marcus.

In der Anfangszeit dürfte das Digitalgeld vor allem für Überweisungen zwischen verschiedenen Währungen eingesetzt werden, sagte Marcus der dpa. Damit würde Libra mit Diensten wie Western Union oder Moneygram konkurrieren, die für internationale Überweisungen hohe Gebühren verlangen. Die Vision sei aber, Libra schließlich zu einem vollwertigen Zahlungsmittel für alle Situationen zu machen.

Vodafone Found Hidden Backdoors in Huawei Equipment - Bloomberg Apr 2019
"Vodafone Group Plc has acknowledged to Bloomberg that it found vulnerabilities going back years with equipment supplied by Shenzhen-based Huawei for the carrier’s Italian business. While Vodafone says the issues were resolved, the revelation may further damage the reputation of a major symbol of China’s global technology prowess."

"Europe’s biggest phone company identified hidden backdoors in the software that could have given Huawei unauthorized access to the carrier’s fixed-line network in Italy ..."

"While backdoors can be common in some network equipment and software because developers create them to manage the gear, they can be exploited by attackers"

Bloomberg alleges Huawei routers and network gear are backdoored • Ars Technica
Peter Bright:
<p>Vodafone, the largest mobile network operator in Europe, found backdoors in Huawei equipment between 2009 and 2011, <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-30/vodafone-found-hidden-backdoors-in-huawei-equipment">reports Bloomberg</a>. With these backdoors, Huawei could have gained unauthorized access to Vodafone's "fixed-line network in Italy." But Vodafone disagrees, saying that while it did discover some security vulnerabilities in Huawei equipment, these were fixed by Huawei and in any case were not remotely accessible, and hence they could not be used by Huawei.

Bloomberg's claims are based on Vodafone's internal security documentation and "people involved in the situation." Several different "backdoors" are described: unsecured telnet access to home routers, along with "backdoors" in optical service nodes (which connect last-mile distribution networks to optical backbone networks) and "broadband network gateways" (BNG) (which sit between broadband users and the backbone network, providing access control, authentication, and similar services).

In response to Bloomberg, Vodafone said that the router vulnerabilities were found and fixed in 2011 and the BNG flaws were found and fixed in 2012. While it has documentation about some optical service node vulnerabilities, Vodafone continued, it has no information about when they were fixed. Further, the network operator said that it has no evidence of issues outside Italy.</p>

Bloomberg hyped this like crazy, but it feels storm-teacuppy here.

Oh dear. Huawei enterprise router 'backdoor' was Telnet, sighs Vodafone
Characterising Telnet as a backdoor is a bit like describing your catflap as an access portal with no physical security features that allows multiple species to pass unhindered through a critical home security layer. In other words, massively over-egging the pudding.

Vodafone denies Huawei Italy security risk - BBC News
This is embarrassing. I can't think of a CPE vendor that didn't pull this crap in 2009. D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, god knows who
