+ - Hardware Vendor Offers Backdoor with Every Product->

Submitted by Nameisyoung007
Nameisyoung007 (1009935) writes "A support page, titled "Backdoor Password for Allied Telesis Devices" recently turned up on Google. The page, labeled ***INTERNAL ONLY*** was written to answer customer questions like "'How do I obtain a backdoor password for my Allied Telesis device?'" and includes instructions on accessing a "built in Backdoor function" on any Allied Telesis device.

Probably a good time to double check your devices, just to make sure you're not affected."
