BSI investigates Lithuania's warning about Chinese smartphones
Following the Lithuanian cyber defense's warning about security vulnerabilities and built-in censorship functionality in Chinese mobile phones, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) is now getting involved. The BSI is currently assessing the report from Lithuania, a BSI spokesperson confirmed to China.Table. The state-run Center for Cybersecurity in Vilnius had been particularly critical of a device made by Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi because it was technically capable of censoring certain content in its built-in web browser (China.Table reported). The censorship filter had not been active but could be switched on remotely.
