Re: Different issues

"So, what's the real issue? Is it just poor security (as the report seems to suggest) or fear of Chinese government backdoors?"

They're looking for Chinese backdoors, but can't find any.

So they're grabbing on to any security flaw they can find to use as an excuse for blacklisting Huawei kit. Of course other vendors might or might not have similair security flaws, and should be getting the same in-depth scrutiny. And of course the REALLY pertinent security question is, are they looking for *American* backdoors in other vendors' kit?
