Wow. Someone was asleep at the switch. Slashdot reports Cisco Products Have Backdoors
Cbs228 writes “A Cisco Security Advisory released yesterday admits that “A default username/password pair is present in all releases of the Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE) and Hosting Solution Engine (HSE) software. A user who logs in using this username has complete control of the device. This username cannot be disabled.” Can we really trust closed-source vendors, such as Cisco, to develop secure products that are free of backdoors?”
It’s a valid question. Many eyes make for shallow bugs.
