Re: Huawei will this end?
Who's going to scrutinize all future firmware updates from Huawei before deployment? I wish those making that argument would keep in mind that any manufacturer that can update its equipment in the field has effective root on those systems.
SYS admins would have that job, hope fully they check EVERY update before they deploy it
I for one am already uncomfortable with Google and Qualcomm having root on my smartphone;
Why not? you trust the murkins and they are actively screwing you, both Govt and corp.
worse they do actively care about you the individual
no way I'm going to entrust potential admin rights to a Chinese entity that can be simply told by its government to ship malicious code to hardware deployed the world over.
The merkins have and do, personally the chinese are the lesser evil
That goes not just for Huawei and ZTE, but for any Chinese brand IMO. At least with stuff built in China but designed in the West, the code signing keys should rest firmly in the headquarters of Apple/Nokia etc. (at least until they outsource their software too)...
Would it not be better to open source the code? or local govt oversight (i know open to highest bidder)
or code that dose not require constant updating ...coff..coff
