Pourquoi les Huawei constitue un risque pour la sécurité, mais pas OnePlus ?

Why is Huawei considered a security risk, but not OnePlus?

Avant de comparer un smartphone pliable, il faut toujours voir les différents appareils disponibles sur le marché. Lequel, permettra vraiment de mater les news chaque jours de manière confortable ?

un certain nombre de pays occidentaux comme l’Australie ont interdit de Huawei de participer à leurs déploiements de 5G pour le motif que le matériel chinois pourrait poser un risque de sécurité nationale. Mais, ce qui n’est pas clair pour moi est dans la mesure (le cas échéant) que la préoccupation s’étend aux smartphones Huawei. En outre, j’ai remarqué que personne ne semble soulever des préoccupations au sujet de OnePlus ou Oppo. Y a-t-il des inquiétudes avec ces téléphones ?

  1. Huawei heavily invested in 5g and is at least 1 year ahead in the technology. (Equipment, routers etc). And could supply whole country with it. However software is not open source and government will loose controll over the internet (ability to connect to routers etc). Oneplus is just producing phones and is not interfering with government security/spying program.

  2. The question would be why Huawei is considered a risk and ZTE isnt, and truth is that they basically blackmailed ZTE, forced them to pay a large fine and hand over the source code for all their devices to the US goverment.

    Its basically blackmail to allow western spy agencies to access their equiptment.

    While i remember that during the Iranian green revolution which failed, Siemens and Nokia were more then happy to give the Iranian government access to their networking equipment so they can listen in on protesters.

    As well as Cisco and Nortel giving unlimited access to the FBI, CIA and NSA.

    So maybe you should be asking, Why is Huawei considered a security risk when its been well proven that all other equipment manufactures are way too happy to give governments access to their devices.

  3. I’m a Canadian Huawei user, and there’s alot of news coverage about Huawei phones being « dangerous ». I’ve had plenty of people ask what my phone is, and when I say a Huawei model, often the reply is something about if I know the Chinese are spying on me with it.

  4. If Huawei phone have spyware than every other phone made by Chinese company will have them.

    There is a law that force companies to share data with the goverment, so it doesnt make sense that some people want it to be only applied to Huawei.

    The main issue with U.S and Huawei is the trade war with China, they are just being used a chess piece in their negotiation, since they even warned carriers of selling their phones.

  5. It’s probably just protectionism. The government trying to rile up the idiots, then the idiots take it to social media and make up a whole bunch of shit to go along with the rather meager initial accusation.

    In this case, the accusation is « because of China’s law, Huawei could be forced to do this in the future ». However if you browse social media, or even this subreddit, the idiots’ charge is « Huawei is beaming your dick pictures straight to Vinnie the Pooh! ».

    I for one am definitely going to continue buying Huawei if the value for money is there and no concrete evidence of wrongdoing is presented.

  6. Huawei is usually charged with having their firmware hacked so the Chinese can backdoor right in. Their network equipment the same.

    They have locked bootloaders, custom android, slow to release or haven’t released kernal information.

    Oneplus uses stock Android, releases kernal information, you can unlock bootloader and do what you want.

    The transparency of oneplus gives them the edge.

  7. To me, it’s because of the bootloaders.

    With OnePlus, you can be certain that there aren’t any sneaky things in your phone. Either root it and dig through the root filesystem to check and ensure that everything’s alright, or compile a custom ROM from source – source code which you’ve gone through and ensured that it’s clean.

    With Huawei, you use whatever software they built into your phone. That’s it, you’re stuck. They could literally have a file whose content is « #FUCK YOU! YOU’RE BEING TRACKED BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT!!!! », with the rest of the lines consisting of a keylogger and no one would be able to check and figure it out.

  8. Can someone make this clear for me?

    If Huawei which is a large company with so much resources can be considered to be working with the Chinese government, then why can’t we be suspecting the smaller Chinese manufacturers? Oppo, vivo, OnePlus. Not considering the network equipment controversy, just asking about phones here.


  9. Nobody in government really cares about consumer phone spying. It’s expected that if you need a secure device for business or government reasons, you get something locked down and built by someone you trust.

    It’s about network infrastructure. 5G access points, etc… – if that stuff is insecure, then all traffic through it can be spied on.

  10. I have a question about their « technique » of spying. Are spying through their phones by sending data packets to a server from user data? Or is the fact that if they build a 5G infrastructure in the US, they could put in back doors ? Is it both ?

  11. is huawei not owned by the Chinese government? i remember being involved with the G8 summit back in 2013 where we used a lot of huawei equipment for providing the network and the US refused to use it, even though one of the first 4g networks was there specifically for the summit

  12. Because the controversy and bans are about networking equipment, which OnePlus doesn’t do. Yes people say the phones spy on you too, but that’s not where the big concern is.

    Why is this topic constantly posted and every time the same misinformation is resposted with it. Yes I care if I have 2 countries spying on me. No I don’t want America to spy on me but I don’t really have a choice, and don’t plan on doing anything illegal for them to use against me anyway. However adding China on top of that where they have no laws on how they use data gathered isn’t something I’d want.

    And no… It’s not a spooky witch hunt. There’s a real fear that China can force Huawei to give them access because it’s China. No we weren’t the first to start the « hysteria ». And finally no, I don’t think we should finish the infrastructure to be possibly be proven right and have to start over…

  13. From everything I’ve seen it’s:

    Huawei broke some trade embargos with Iran or something like that

    A company that big that’s from China which means they have more resources to get big here fast and that would give « China » control of the market especially with 5g nearing release. (If you are gonna say xiaomj and opportunity are also big it’s more because Huawei was trying really hard to push into America in recent years and ended up being made a target.)

    Also wasn’t one of their executives like arrested in Canada or something?

  14. The key with any Chinese phone is can you unlock the bootloader and wipe Android to install Lineage OS? By doing this you prevent both the Chinese government and Google/U.S. government from spying on you.

    Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone maker with an unlocked bootloader, and the Pocophone F1 is very compatible with LOS 16. Use your own prepaid SIM paid with cash, and you have a $300 smartphone that is close to spec of flagships except camera – and with privacy.
