DEFCON On (Hacked) Huawei Routers

Rio Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas: Hackers at Def Con 20 gathering on Sunday were shown how to easily slip into computer networks through some routers made by Chinese electronics colossus Huawei Technologies.

“For the 20th anniversary of Def Con the gift hits China,” Recurity Labs chief Felix “FX” Lindner said as he opened his presentation.
