Re: 5 Ears?
Really? I'm not saying that equipment made in countries with large surveillance systems is free from backdoors, but we're talking China here. They have spyware on pretty much everything, but they just won't have it on something big and important? That doesn't make sense to me. If you do want to go full conspiracy theory, it wouldn't matter if the Chinese equipment did in fact have no back doors, because the Australian companies would be going to configure and program it. If a surveillance system needs to be built, that could be done no matter what it runs on.
