If you are using any major Linux distribution you should patch now. There’s a remotely exploitable condition in any Linux Kernel (such as Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, and others) that is prior to 5.0.8.

Vodaphone denies any backdoors found in Huawei devices

Looks like Vodaphone considered having a telnet server running as a backdoor in the initial reporting by Bloomberg. All the same though, using Huawei devices as infrastructure of a 5G cellular network gives another nation state access to some potentially sensitive data and they would have the ability to remotely tamper with it. As more and more people rely on high speed cellular networks this is still a bad idea!
