Google confirms that advanced backdoor came preinstalled on Android devices https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/06/google-confirms-2017-supply-chain-attack-that-sneaked-backdoor-on-android-devices/
@yogthos 'double XOR', I'm impressed
@yogthos and that does not call for boycotts by Trump of course...
Blacklisting Huawei is not about backdoors and espionage at all, it is just killing competition from abroad by government intervention.
@arjenpdevries yeah that's been very blatant. Turns out that if a non-US company starts doing well, then US can just take them apart by shutting them out of Android, Arm, USB, and WiFi.
I really hope the rest of the world takes that as a warning, and companies start developing specs that aren't owned by a single country.
