From an interview with Andy Purdy:
In response to Andy’s attempt to downgrade a back door to a simple vulnerability :
All equipment has vulnerabilities. That’s different than an intentional malicious back door, Maria, and you know that.
All equipment has vulnerability? All equipment does not have back doors to the Chinese communist government. Why do you have so many back doors going to the Chinese government, the communist government, so that anybody’s data is out there and goes right back to the Chinese government? We know this. Huawei is a Chinese company.
Very good interview. Maria was on fire, and I saw smoke coming out of Andy’s ears.
