Huawei
« on: 09 September 2019, 17:27:12 »

Everyone, esp. the US, is worried about Huawei equipment being used in 5G networks because of security concerns. But what about Lenovo? They make everything from PCs to smartphones and are used widely in this country. Their headquarters is in Beijing, so why are we not worried about them?

Good question! :y :y

I have been following the A New World Order on the BBC all about the political situation and everything else going on in China. :o :o :o

It is all not good, but seemingly the power is going in that direction, so heaven help us! :( :( :o :o

Consumer products unless you have a government or key industry job aren't the problem using Huawei for your 5g comms architecture might be, where you have access to large amounts of a countries data to which you can apply superfast parallel processing to pick out key voice & data words using fast parallel signal processors. All countries force telecoms companies to use these systems, including the UK, to record data & calls of interest for their intelligence services. Obviously no country wants to make it easy for an aggressive adversary to do the same. China probably have the biggest soft power and spy networks in the world at this time, which includes key 'researchers' & 'workers' in key academic & industry positions & also an aggressive takeover policy for key industries. :(

Trump pushing back against Chinese IP abuses is fine, except he has gone about it in the wrong way by putting tariffs on easily substituted goods like food rather than problematic hitech industries. :-[

Or you're a persecuted minority in a country that hates you and has significant resources - see the Apple 0-day attacks that Google Project Zero published, and Apple brushed off as "No big deal, it was only a targeted attack against a [persecuted Chinese ethnic minority] in China. Western folks, you're cool!" ;)

Possibly because Apple is opening a China datacenter where Chinese iCloud services will be provided by a Government owned provider .. </cynic>

Hauwei's biggest issue is probably around poor code rather than direct government interference.  Lenovo have *EXACTLY* the same issue, and if you have an older Lenovo consumer laptop, do the BIOS or bin it. Newer ones are better, but remove the Lenovo software, because its an easy way in for any hacker
