Huawei USB LTE dongles are vulnerable to attacks

Post by techietraveller84 »

If you are using a Huawei USB dongle, check for this security update.
This week, a Trustwave security researcher disclosed a privilege escalation flaw in Huawei's USB LTE dongles.

A USB dongle is a piece of hardware that can be plugged into laptop and desktop computers, much like a thumb drive, to access the internet.

Huawei confirmed to BleepingComputer that they had accepted this as a vulnerability and issued an advisory with the remediation instructions.

Huawei has advised users of its USB LTE dongle (E3372) to obtain the "Hi Link" driver files from their website to resolve this vulnerability.

"Customer security is Huawei’s top priority and like all responsible businesses if vulnerabilities are discovered we encourage people to report them to our Product Security Incident Response Team - [email protected]," a Huawei spokesperson told BleepingComputer.
