Re: password backdoors

Can anyone enlighten me further into how this would be
done and if such back doors exist in other operating
systems.

That was most likely DEC's intent with the "field:service" account.

No, that is so the field circus guy has an account to run diagnostics
and get error logs from.

But it was the intent of the conversational boot and UAFALTERNATE hack.

I've never seen a system that can't be entered without a password if
you have unrestricted physical access to the hardware.
