According to a White House-ordered review, a giant Chinese technology company is not a state-sponsored espionage tool, Reuters reports.
However, the report said that Huawei Technologies Ltd. is vulnerable to hacking.
Joseph Menn wrote that a source told him the classified review included interviews with almost 1,000 telecom equipment buyers about “suspicious activities” relating to Huawei and ZTE Corp.
The review occurred after claims from the House Intelligence Committee and committee Chairman Mike Rogers said that some “very valuable data” from Huawei was sent to China.
