Congress Brands Huawei and ZTE as Security Threats
Replying to: Compared to what? by Globhead
The US government wants to spy on us at will, and the NSA won't say how many times it "accidentally" committed warrantless theft of our data.
Our wireless carriers can install Carrier IQ on our phones without our permission (software which is apparently a finger fumble away from oops-we-logged-your-keystrokes), and the US government doesn't give a hoot.
But they warn us that Huawei might, via unspecified hypothetical means, do unspecified things. And maybe they will, But our heroic politicians sure are selective about protecting us.
All good points. And these measures the US govt is putting into place are just political posturing, partly. Of course, if they're correct, then I don't want Huawei or ZTE handling any of our infrastructure.
