Huawei New Smartphone OS ?

Recommended Posts

Mostly due to concerns discovered by Kryptowire back in November of 2011, and is still ongoing today.  https://www.kryptowire.com/kryptowire-discovers-mobile-phone-firmware-transmitted-personally-identifiable-information-pii-without-user-consent-disclosure/

Two of China's largest cellphone manufacturers: ZTE and Huawei both have what appears to be a hidden backdoor purposefully installed without the knowledge of retailers or the customers eventually relying on those devices.

 The backdoor is used by ADUPS to intercept traffic or disable a communications system in a way that firewall and intrusion detection systems aren't able to detect.

Yes, right, I remember this, and data theft and hacking was rampant...so this is why I personally would not ever have a phone with a chinese OS, but there are those folks who see an opportunity to make a fortune coding apps and software for an upstart platform... 

from the little I've read on the subject of the Chinese are leading the world in theft and hacking anyway  https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/20/18150275/chinese-hackers-stealing-data-nasa-ibm-charged  so why put even more personal info into their hands ? but that's just me...

It seems to be the way of the world now to break and take whatever you can get away with...

give me the phone system and OS that detects and blocks any and all attempts to scour my info and identifies the culprits to the NSA and FBI and I will use that !
