The head of the FBI has warned that the Chinese government may be spying on U.S. citizens who use smartphones made by Huawei.
The intelligence chief told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that American telecom companies should be cautious of Chinese technology companies that have links with foreign governments.
“We’re deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks,” said FBI Director Chris Wray.
His wireless Apple headphone started smoking during a workout. Then it exploded, he said.
A Florida man says one of his wireless headphones caught fire while he was at the gym.He had been working out at the LA Fitness on 4th Street in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Thursday, listening to dance music, when white smoke began to leak from the right headphone, Colon told WFLA, an NBC affiliate Tampa. He removed both AirPods and left them on a piece of equipment as he went to seek help. When he returned, he was shocked to find the right headphone had shattered, he said. The left headphone remained intact.
“That provides the capacity to exert pressure or control over our telecommunications infrastructure. It provides the capacity to maliciously modify or steal information. And it provides the capacity to conduct undetected espionage.”
Wray’s comments follow afrom the bureau that described the perceived threat posed by Huawei due to its “opaque relationship” with the Chinese government.
“Since Huawei’s inception in 1987, the company continues to receive open support from senior Chinese Communist Party officials and People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Commanders,” the report stated.
“With over $100 billion in Chinese Government subsization and direct financing, Huawei is able to offer unsuspecting U.S. businesses low-cost offers difficult to refuse in exchange for access to U.S. networks.”

Huawei denied that its devices were at any greater risk to hacking or spies than that of its competitors.
“Huawei is aware of a range of U.S. government activities seemingly aimed at inhibiting Huawei’s business in the U.S. market,” the firm said in a statement.
“Huawei is trusted by governments and customers in 170 countries worldwide and poses no greater cybersecurity risk than any ICT vendor, sharing as we do common global supply chains and production capabilities.”
During the hearing, Wray also claimed that Chinese operatives acting as professors, scientists and students have infiltrated American universities.
“I think the level of naivete on the part of the academic sector about this creates its own issues,” Wray said.
“They’re exploiting the very open research and development environment that we have, which we all revere. But they’re taking advantage of it.”
