Chinese telecoms kit maker Huawei has said it is investigating claims by researchers that two of its router products contain serious vulnerabilities which could allow hackers to remotely take control of the devices.

that's a new email address...

More worryingly, the PGP public key for them on FIRST's website differs from the one linked to on the press release page!
I didn't notice that
Is their (on their press release page link) PGP key still signed with a not-for-commercial-use package?
(after checking) Nope, it's signed by a 4 year old release of GnuPG running under MingW32...
wow just wow
Who in their right mind would buy any kit from this outfit? Oh that right they leave the purchasing decisions to the retards (mgmt & accounting).
