    <p>What good is a mobile provider if they have to outsource the running of their network? Might as well call it Huawei telecom at that point.</p>

    <p>Huawei were granted Administrator rights, and were effectively running the entire Telco operation. </p><p>As Administrators, they had the ability to access everything. That’s not a security vulnerability or a backdoor or even a hacking attack. It’s not even technical; that’s just Administrator-level privilege.</p>

    <p>Other Huawei news. Leica is dumping the partnership with Huawei mobile. I think its a matter of some months before Huawei stop making smartphones. </p>
