HKISPA's response to Public Consultation on the Review of the Telecommunications Regulatory Framework

HKISPA 回應 "電訊規管架構檢討第二階段公眾諮詢" 提出了以下的意見。

1. 支持5G及物聯網裝置的電訊功能應由《電訊條例》規管;但要求規管不應窒礙市場,裝置入口及發售無需送檢。 

2. 支持提高保護地下電訊基建設施的刑事罰則;但要求釐清工程的法律責任人,避免前線工人負上不合理的刑責。 

3. 支持簡化發出非傳送者牌照;要求機制容許業界主動提出申請任何牌照,通訊管理局的決定及原因要公開透明,以及提供上訴機制。

4. 支持通訊管理局提供額外上訴機制;要求機制容許任何人包括公眾就通訊事務管理局的決定提出上訴。

5. 要求全面檢視電訊規管法例,刪除過時及不必要的要求。

6. 要求檢討電訊規管法例有關建築物准入的機制,現時的條文不清晰。

7. 另外就 "保護地下電訊基建設施" 的罰則提高,考慮建立地下電訊基建設施共用資料庫,方便電訊工程進行。

May 15, 2017

Due to the outbreak of the WannaCry ransomware and expected varied forms of the virus in the coming days, the HKISPA recommends the following procedures to be considered by your call centre and network engineers.

1. Network engineers may consider temporarily taking the following measures, in order of priority. Adopting these policies will temporarily disable Windows File/Printer Sharing and Samba services of your customers with external hosts, therefore full communication with customers in prior is recommended.

A. Dropping the following inbound traffic, to protect your customers' exposed and un-patched Windows PC from getting infected.

Inbound TCP destination port 445 (Server Message Block)
Inbound TCP destination port 139 (NetBios session service)
Inbound UDP destination port 137 (NetBios name service)

B. Dropping the following outbound traffic, to prevent your clients' infected computer from infecting others.

Outbound TCP destination port 445 (Server Message Block)
Outbound TCP destination port 139 (NetBios session service)
Outbound UDP destination port 137 (NetBios name service)
