China’s Huawei to Build Huge Danish Data Theft Center- WTF?
Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 4, 2014
How crazy is this? Denmark has allowed Huawei, a notorious Chinese military spy arm- allegedly, to build up its 4g telecommunications network. I guess that data integrity is not on the Danes radar screen as of yet.
Huawei is a scary, tight lipped Chinacommunist firm with deep ties to the government and military. It has been proven that Huawei gear is not secure and that Huawei installs backdoors into its kit.
Why anyone would trust a Chunese telco, let alone Huawei, is beyond me.
Mobile equipment manufacturer Huawei will supply the equipment and operation of its mobile network to a total of $ 4 billion. Director denies that there is reason to be worried about being watched by Beijing.
