HP storage: more possible backdoors


If this is the feature that was removed around version 9, it's not really a big deal.

With console access to a node from the default login menu you could hold down shift and type LHN to bring up a support menu.

From this menu you could select that you required a support shell, a one time challenge is displayed on the screen and HP have a response generator.

No hidden account, no default system password, just a pretty secure manner to serve a customer need.
