Nokia Disowns Comments Made by Company CTO Alleging Huawei Hardware Suffers From Security Vulnerabilities

Telecom giant Nokia has disowned the comments of its chief technology officer Marcus Weldon after he told the BBC News that the UK should be wary of using hardware from Nokia rival Huawei due to security vulnerabilities in the Chinese tech giant’s technology that posed risks to 5G networks. Nokia said in a statement that Weldon’s views do “not reflect the official position of Nokia.” Regarding Huawei’s alleged security vulnerabilities, Weldon said “[s]ome of it seems to be just sloppiness, honestly, that they haven’t patched things, they haven’t upgraded. But some of it is real obfuscation, where they make it look like they have the secure version when they don’t.”
