Nokia said 55% of Huawei's devices contain backdoor and no security patches

Huawei was blocked by the Trump government, Nokia and Ericsson – Hoa Vi's two competitors in the 5G network infrastructure equipment market obviously benefited and in the latest transformation, Nokia has just added fuel to the fire when it comes to the scene. reported security risks in Huawei's technology and criticized China's unfair trade environment in the past.

Nokia's chief technology officer Marcus Weldon told the BBC: "It is fair to return to the market. We have been very disadvantaged in the past on funding mechanisms that Chinese people are allowed to have." In addition to allegations linked to the Beijing government, which raised concerns about security, Huawei and ZTE also have state subsidies, soft loans and access to procurement contracts. big in the domestic market according to many sources revealed.

In terms of security, Weldon mentioned the analysis shows that Huawei devices contain more security holes than Nokia or Ericsson technologies. "We read those reports and thought we were doing better than them (Huawei)," Weldon emphasized Nokia's alternative solution more reliable than Huawei. In addition, he said: "Some of the products are made carelessly and honestly and they don't seem to patch holes, don't upgrade. But some products are very refined. vi, Huawei makes them look like they have created a more secure version but in fact not. "

What was announced by Marcus Weldon demonstrates a reversal move when just last week, Bloomberg said before the situation that Huawei was in a position to be a mystery, "Nokia and Ericsson operators are very careful in announcements. , avoid criticizing Huawei because both companies are producing equipment in China, selling equipment to Chinese operators and even Nokia has a large R&D center here. "

The opinion of chief technology officer Nokia from Finite State's research shows that "Huawei devices pose quantifiable risks to users. In most of the checked categories, Huawei devices were discovered to be less secure than similar devices from other vendors. "

The risk of hacking on Huawei's devices includes backdoors and this is the core factor that makes the US banned from Huawei. According to Finite State's report: "Of all the analyzed firmware samples, 55% contains at least one backdoor. Access holes through the backdoor will allow an attacker with firmware and / or experience. Owning the corresponding security key can log into the device. "

"In general, although Huawei has always made security a priority, the security of their devices shows a lag behind the rest of the industry. By analyzing changes in the firmware over time. For the time being, this study found that the security status of the devices has not been improved, in at least one case we observed, the actual security capability has decreased. With the lack of updates, the security risk of using Huawei's devices will obviously increase, "according to Finite State's report.

Responding to this information, a Huawei spokesperson said: "We are currently not willing to comment on the objectivity and integrity of this report. Huawei always welcomes any suggestions based on the fact. and contribute to ensure the stability of network infrastructure The more you inspect and analyze Huawei products, the better chance we will have to discover potential security issues, thereby making products Our products are safer. Huawei takes security very seriously and this is our top priority. "

And when asked about backdoor risk, the agent said: "We will not and will never implant backdoor. In addition, we will never allow anyone to do this on your device. Our network security is a technical issue and it will be resolved technically and we will carefully analyze reports, proactively and publicly participate in working with stakeholders on issues. We welcome the deep exchange between Finite State and Huawei's security experts. "

Although the United States listed Huawei as a blacklist, blockade Huawei's business in the US market and put pressure on many allied countries to find alternative solutions for Huawei but the device business. Serving the 5G network infrastructure of Chinese technology corporation seems to be alive and well. This week, Huawei announced that it is leading the 5G market competitors with more than 50 contracts to supply 5G network equipment to partners outside China and will install more than 150,000 base stations based on the combination. this fellow. However, according to CNN's report, Nokia is getting more 5G customers than Huawei. Besides Nokia, which brands are participating in the 5G race? Please read more in the article below:

In the telephone segment, Huawei announced the sales of the flagship P30 to reach 10 million units in just 85 days, faster than its predecessor P20 and a quarterly sales record. Even so, the company acknowledged that the US action would cause $ 30 billion in Huawei's 2019 revenue stream to evaporate and reverse the state of a decade of relentless growth.

The speech of technology director Marcus Weldon appeared in a very sensitive period, just before the UK had a new prime minister and Britain was a country belonging to Five Eyes – a military sharing group and intelligence group including the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. The possibility of the new prime minister will change Theresa May's previous decision by allowing Huawei to participate in the 5G network bidding in the UK.
