How to log into any backdoored Juniper firewall – hard-coded password published

psam

This has to be added to every dictionary, the <<< can save years plus the outside characters and spaces could really help brute force. It's not about guessing brute force but assuming they might have used this format somewhere else, or just being able to guess the = and spaces is a huge help

I hope they had to choose a password for someting else important, it should have been yX''k877'J@YgG~{T*[X? something not anything readable (assuming 21 characters was the limit).
