    It is hilarious when US government pushes other countries to not use Huawei equipment when Cisco - US-based company - includes backdoor such as described in CVE-2019-1804.

    U.S. officials said the decision would also make it difficult for Huawei to sell some products because of its reliance on U.S. suppliers. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement President Donald Trump backed the decision that will 'prevent American technology from being used by foreign owned entities in ways that potentially undermine U.S. national security or foreign policy interests.'..."
