Could Huawei be using Trojan circuits to help Beijing spy on the US?

Speaking on CNBC recently, US Senator John Barrasso was adamant that Huawei, the leading Chinese telecommunications equipment maker, represented a clear threat to the United States.

“Huawei is a true threat. It could be a Trojan horse,” the third-ranking member in the Senate Republican leadership said.

Barrasso is one of the many American politicians who have called for a ban on Huawei equipment and technology.

They have said that the conglomerate, based in Shenzhen in southern China, installs “back doors” or “Trojans” in its devices to siphon off sensitive data to the Chinese government without detection.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has travelled the world warning allies to stay away from Huawei lest they put intelligence sharing with the US at risk.
