Vodafone denies Huawei Italy security hazard - rictasblog

Vodafone has denied a report saying issues found in hardware provided to it by Huawei in Italy in 2011 and 2012 could have enabled unapproved access to its fixed-line arrange there.

A Bloomberg report said that Vodafone seen security defects in programming that could have given Huawei unapproved access to Italian homes and organizations.

The US will not utilize Huawei hardware for security reasons.

Be that as it may, reports propose the UK may give the firm help a chance to construct its 5G organize.

This is in spite of the US needing the UK and its different partners in the "Five Eyes" knowledge gathering - Canada, Australia and New Zealand - to prohibit the organization.

Australia and New Zealand have officially blocked telecoms organizations from utilizing Huawei hardware in 5G systems, while Canada is exploring its association with the Chinese telecoms firm.

In an announcement, Vodafone stated: "The issues in Italy identified in the Bloomberg story were all resolved and date back to 2011 and 2012.

"The 'backdoor' that Bloomberg refers to is Telnet, which is a protocol that is commonly used by many vendors in the industry for performing diagnostic functions. It would not have been accessible from the internet.

"Bloomberg is incorrect in saying that this 'could have given Huawei unauthorised access to the carrier's fixed-line network in Italy'.

"In addition, we have no evidence of any unauthorised access. This was nothing more than a failure to remove a diagnostic function after development.

"The issues were identified by independent security testing, initiated by Vodafone as part of our routine security measures, and fixed at the time by Huawei."

A Huawei representative stated: 'We were made aware of historical vulnerabilities in 2011 and 2012 and they were addressed at the time.

"Software vulnerabilities are an industry-wide challenge. Like every ICT [information and communications technology] vendor, we have a well-established public notification and patching process, and when a vulnerability is identified, we work closely with our partners to take the appropriate corrective action."
