This is not how to build consumer confidence in US-based information security companies.

“The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has asked dozens of agencies in the US government to disclose whether they used switches made by Juniper, the disgraced US network technology giant that had at least two backdoors inserted into the software for one of its most popular product-lines.”

“Word of the backdoors came to light in late December, when the company announced that it would remediate the vulnerabilities immediately. However by early January it was clear that the company had deliberately left some fo the vulnerabilities intact, accompanied by evidence that Juniper had assisted someone — likely a US government agency — in compromising its products. The next day, the company finally announced that it would comprehensively remove the compromised code.” – Corey Doctorow / Boing Boing
