On a similar note, according to a recent report, six product designers at Huawei seems to have forgotten the most important rule "don't get caught" while leaking confidential data to fellow Chinese firm LeEco.

Huawei has already pressed charges against the alleged snitches and insists that LeEco stole 2 technological patents for an antenna design and a children's smartwatch from them.
