The Latest in IT Security

The NSA has reportedly been spying on Huawei’s servers for years


The US government has made definitive statements about Chinese telecommunications company Huawei — a 2012 report claimed that the companys networking equipment posed a national security risk, something that caused the company to largely retreat from operating in the US market. Somewhat ironically, however, the US government appears to be doing something very similar to what it accused Huawei of. The New York Times is reporting that the NSA has created its own back doors directly into Huaweis telecommunications networks for the purpose of collecting information on the vast array of hardware that the company claims connects a third of the global population. The NSA also monitored communications of the companys top executives and also searched for links between Huawei and the Peoples Liberation Army (of which Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei was a member).
