Huawei Gets Green Light to Infect British Infrastructure
Good grief! Giving Huawei a clean bill of health (see the UK Register story here) is letting the fox in the henhouse. Heck, 37 years ago I was putting foolproof back doors into the RSTS timesharing system I had installed in my home and from which I ran my 1978 race for the U.S. Congress. The revelation that NSA put back doors into the firmware on US-manufactured disk controllers ought to be proof enough that any reasonably competent developer can create absolutely undetectable hooks. Somebody (probably multiple somebodies) on Her Majesty's Cyber Security team has been well and truly…bought.
