Huawei equipment is exposing British broadband and phone networks to new security risks

Daily Mail - Science & tech 

Huawei equipment could pose a threat to national security, senior British security officials have cautioned. Intelligence experts say they can only provide limited assurances that the Chinese company is not a risk to broadband and phone networks in the UK. The recommendation will be made in an as-yet unpublished annual report signed off by the GCHQ spy agency, according to inside sources. Huawei, one of the world's biggest producer of telecoms systems, is a major supplier of broadband and mobile telephone network equipment in Britain. The latest finding will likely intensify the espionage debate around the Shenzhen-based company, which has come previously under fire in the US and Australia.
