Huawei to meet with security researcher who disclosed vulnerabilities in its products

Lucian Constantin | Nov. 2, 2012
Chinese networking and telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei plans to send a team of engineers to Germany in order to meet with Felix Lindner, a security researcher who earlier this year disclosed vulnerabilities in the company's products, he confirmed.

For the past few years, the company has strongly disputed accusations of having ties to the Chinese military or the country's intelligence services.

A report released earlier this month by the U.S. House of Representatives' Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said that using equipment from Huawei and fellow Chinese telecom vendor ZTE for U.S. critical infrastructure would pose a national security threat because of the possible ties between the two companies and the Chinese government. The committee advised the U.S. government, its contractors, as well as private-sector companies to avoid buying networking equipment from the two Chinese vendors.

Huawei dismissed the report as being politically motivated.
