Huawei denies claims it hacked foreign networks


Huawei has denied helping the Chinese government gather any data on users around the world.

In a statement issued to ZDNet, the Chinese telecoms company said the accusations were baseless and that there is zero evidence to support such claims.

The claims were earlier made by Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Director-General Mike Burgess, as the company prepares to build its 5G infrastructure. The Australian said Huawei employees were used to “get access codes to infiltrate a foreign network”.
