Vodafone has denied reports it found a so-called backdoor in Huawei equipment, but confirmed it identified security flaws in the firm’s technology.

The telecoms firm said it found security vulnerabilities in two Huawei products supplied to its Italian business in 2011 and 2012, and that the issue had been resolved quickly.

But it denied reports the weaknesses amounted to a backdoor giving the Chinese firm unauthorised access to its fixed-line network in Italy.

“The issues in Italy were all resolved and date back to 2011 and 2012,” a spokesperson for Vodafone said.

“In addition, we have no evidence of any unauthorised access.
