Bloomberg said its report is based on Vodafone's security briefing documents from 2009 and 2011 as well as on discussions with people familiar with the matter. It's already banned in four major countries across the world, and thanks to a new report from Bloomberg, the image of the company is once again headed in the wrong direction. Vodafone Italy asked Huawei to remove this telnet and was once more told that it had been, when subsequent testing revealed it hadn't. That is the reason why Apple refused to build a backdoor into iOS for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) when it wanted help in cracking the security of an iPhone model that belonged one of the San Bernardino shooters.
The latest mini-leak in the ongoing Huawei propaganda war saw Vodafone admit to finding security flaws in some Huawei kit in the past.
The telecoms company acknowledged that it found vulnerabilities in technology supplied to its Italian business, which have since been resolved, according to Bloomberg.
Vodafone Group Plc has confirmed to Bloomberg that it discovered hidden backdoors in the software of Huawei's equipment, supplied to their Italian branch, nearly years ago. The companies said the telnet equipment was to test the network, had been left behind by accident and was later removed. At the time of their discovery, Vodafone believed the backdoors would give Huawei access to local machines on the routers as well as access to wide-area networks.
"The story published by Bloomberg today is misleading", Huawei said in a statement. Vodafone also identified backdoors in parts of its fixed-access network known as optical service nodes, which are responsible for transporting internet traffic over optical fibers, and other parts called broadband network gateways, which handle subscriber authentication and access to the internet, the people said. After being slapped by a series of bans, Huawei does not supply telecoms equipment to the USA and its allies such as New Zealand, a move that has been supported by privacy issues such as possible cases of spying and so forth. It argued that the backdoor vulnerabilities were related to Telnet, a commonly-used protocol for performing diagnostic functions.
"In addition, we have no evidence of any unauthorised access". "Vulnerabilities in both the routers and the fixed access network remained beyond 2012, and were also present in Vodafone's businesses in the U.K., Germany, Spain and Portugal", Bloomberg reported.
Huawei said it was made aware of historical vulnerabilities in 2011 and 2012 and that they had been addressed at the time.
