 UK: Huaweis equipment has security holes, but it has nothing to do with Chinese government intervention


Officials, including the UKs GCHQ signal intelligence agency, said Huawei had made only limited progress in solving the problems raised last year and had no confidence in the companys ability to complete previously announced network security reforms.

The report acknowledges that while our software conversion process is still in its infancy, we have made some progress in improving our software engineering capabilities, a company spokesman said

Officials said the latest report is part of the governments annual review of Huaweis equipment used in the UK, which is for equipment in 2019 and has nothing to do with sanctions.

The report said the increased scrutiny means that the number of vulnerabilities found in Huaweis equipment in 2019 is significantly higher than that in the previous year, including a problem with the companys broadband products, which is considered to have national significance..

The board said it was not known whether hackers had exploited the vulnerabilities, but they still pose serious risks.
