I have an old Apollo box running Domain 10.4.1 and lost the password for
root, the only account. ... the HP service engineer said that I should have
given him a ring as they have a way to get in ! ... Can anyone enlighten me
further into how this would be done
Hmmm He was NOT boasting...
With physical access to an HP 9000 I can break root ok...
I dont think he can do it with a backdoor password...
Even If it could be possible..BUT THAT couldnt be widely known
Only the person who put it there
Anywayz since I am the one who started sniffers' saga in our maillist
I suggest that the whole matter is covered...UP to here guys...
I guess there is no way to detect a sniffer without having the whole
net upside down...
