Australia sees Huawei as a security risk

Many the high-profile hacking cases that have surfaced over the last year or so have been traced back to China. This has led many countries to fear Chinese companies since they are often closely tied to the Chinese government. Australia has gone a step further and when it opened bids for building a high-speed Internet network within the country, it simply banned Huawei from bidding.

According to sources Huawei was banned from bidding based on the advice of intelligence officials over the fear of security for the network. Huawei has rejected any notion of it being a security risk.
