Oh dear. Huawei enterprise router 'backdoor' was Telnet, sighs Vodafone
LOL:
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.

Just As We Warned: A Chinese Tech Giant Goes On The Patent Attack -- In East Texas | Techdirt
Techdirt has been warning for years that the West's repeated demands for China to "respect" patents could backfire badly. [...] And guess what? That is exactly what has just happened, as The Wall Street Journal reports:

'Huawei Technologies Co. said it has filed a lawsuit against T-Mobile US Inc., alleging the U.S. telecommunications carrier violated the Chinese company’s patents related to wireless networks. In its complaint filed this week in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Huawei said T-Mobile is using its patented technology without signing a licensing agreement.'


At least this is the most likely scenario to result in patent reform, finally.

BBC News - Chinese firm Huawei controls net filter praised by PM
Talk Talk's porn-filtering, system praised by David Cameron in the UK as a model for porn filtering for the country's ISPs, is operated by Huawei. Of course, there's no possible problems with allowing Huawei, with its alleged close ties to the Chinese government, operate a state-wide internet censorship system in the UK without any functioning oversight, right? ;)

Also worth noting: all TalkTalk traffic passes through the Huawei filtering infrastructure, even when the customer has "opted in".
