Allegedly hacked entire OPM database, Marriot and other orgs. This allows them to potentially blackmail key personnel they want to control. Imagine what they can accomplish with the deployment of Huawei 5G.

This is bullshit. what's the connection? This is an Android based flaw. What could Huawei 5G infrastructure do that couldn't yet be achieved through their highly prevalent 4G infrastructure? Are we worried they're gonna spy us faster and with lower latency?

All this 5G panic is ridiculous. If our protocols were properly end to end encrypted then it doesn't matter who makes the router.

The real reason is that 5G is not secure by design, just like 4G and 3G and GSM before. But the NSA wants to have the keys only for themselves.
