US intelligence agencies do not recommend citizens to use smartphones manufactured by China

44
The heads of the FBI, the CIA and the NSA did not recommend the Americans to use smartphones made by Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE, claiming that they threaten the security of the country, reports TASS CNN post.




According to the information, with such a warning, the heads of these departments spoke at a hearing held on the intelligence committee of the Senate of the US Congress.

FBI Director Christopher Ray explained the opinion of the special services, stating that "it is risky to allow companies accountable to foreign governments to be connected to the US telecommunications infrastructure."

This creates prerequisites for maliciously altering or stealing information. It also creates opportunities for covert espionage,
said the head of the FBI.

Earlier, the US telecommunications giant Verizon Communications refused to sell smartphones manufactured by Huawei. As the media was told, the company "took this decision under pressure from the US government, which Huawei suspects of cooperating with the Chinese intelligence services."

In Washington, it is believed that on the smartphones of this company programs can be installed through which users are monitored. Recently Republican congressmen Michael Conaway and Liz Cheney proposed to consider a bill that recommended banning the US government from entering into contracts with Huawei and ZTE, as well as using the products of these companies.

      Oh, and for the crafty-eyed, in St. Petersburg, they found a wiretap in household irons from China .. then why talk about smartphones.

            Heat! The "rotten apple" at first Samsung "dropped", now they have taken over the Chinese. He grinned at capitalism. smile It is understandable: the kosher surveillance of "Yepla" is much more democratic and safer than the totalitarian (I say in a whisper) tracking of the Chinese. By the way, where are they doing Yepl?

              You put the simplest children's toy for a child on the phone - they require access to contacts, photos, videos, to the microphone, location, and something else ... WHY ???
              I do not agree - the game will not be installed, the child will not play the cat. And so on all games and programs.
              Moreover, everything is official, people themselves agree that they are constantly monitored. And no smuggled irons are needed.

                You need to disconnect the Internet when using games and programs with such conditions. I played a toy, close it and use the Internet. Well, you can’t get your share of advertising and other junk without the Internet. And you must also turn off geodata.

          Chinese bugs found in St. Petersburg irons - Hi-Tech Mail.Ru
          hi-tech.mail.ru/news/iron-bugs/
          The fact of installing bugs in household appliances at customs was discovered. During weight reconciliation, each of the irons tested weighed several grams more than the weight specified by the manufacturer. Customs officers suspected something was wrong and decided to check what was hidden inside one of the devices. It turned out that there is a small chip with a Wi-Fi module. ... There were no obvious signs of an autopsy on them, which suggests the likelihood that the devices were originally intended for illegal purposes. Technical experts noted that “infected” irons can connect to non-password-protected Wi-Fi networks within a radius of 50-70 meters, that is, if circumstances are successful, they can cover a whole staircase. Network devices begin to search immediately after turning on

    Are the United States worried that someone might copy their window and snapping methods of espionage? Still, they would have claimed copyright.
    Interestingly, American electronics manufacturers paid something for such anti-advertising and squeezing competitors out of the market? Or is it a shareware bonus for complicity in mass espionage?
