THE British government-led board that oversees the vetting of Huawei gear in Britain has publicly chided China's Huawei Technologies for failing to fix long-standing security flaws in its mobile network equipment, said Reuters.

The board released a report that revealed new 'significant technical issues', increasing pressure on the company as it battles Western allegations that Beijing could use its gear for spying.



The report also noted that the company had made 'no material progress' in addressing the security flaws and it didn't have confidence in Huawei's capacity to deliver on proposed measures to address 'underlying defects'.



The board specified that Britain's National Cyber Security Centre does not believe that the defects were a result of state interference, but rather a result of basic engineering incompetence and a lack of cyber security hygiene.
