NSA infiltrates servers of China telecom giant Huawei: report


The U.S. National Security Agency has infiltrated servers in the headquarters of Chinese telecommunications and internet giant Huawei Technologies Co, obtaining sensitive information and monitoring the communications of top executives, the New York Times reported on Saturday. The newspaper said its report on the operation, code-named Shotgiant, was based on NSA documents provided by Edward Snowden, the former agency contractor who since last year has leaked data revealing sweeping U.S. surveillance activities. One of the goals of the operation was to find any connections between Huawei and the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army, according to a 2010 document cited by the Times. It reported that the NSA aimed to conduct surveillance through computer and telephone networks Huawei sold to other nations.
