Hardware researcher Vladislav Yarmak found a Huawei equipment backdoor used in video recorders and security cameras.
To be clear, this security vulnerability is said to be present in the software HiSilicon provides with its system-on-chips to customers. These components, backdoor and all, are then used by an untold number of manufacturers in network-connected recorders and cameras.
It’s not a major threat, or anything people need to fret about, it’s just another indicator of Huawei’s piss-poor approach to security.
AKA do not let Huawei build your 5G infrastructure.
