wiredmikey writes: A hardcoded password-related security vulnerability has been discovered which apparently affects every HP MSA2000 G3, a modular large scale storage array. According to the alert, a hidden user exists that doesn’t show up in the user manager, and the password cannot be changed, creating a perfect “backdoor” opportunity for an attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive information stored on the device, as well as systems it is connected to.
Programmers used to batch environments may find it hard to live without
giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
