For those of you not in the technical field, this is scary stuff. It basically means that a determined person (or group) can access and control some of our most basic infrastructure elements by using undocumented access points that are called “backdoors” that are potentially unguarded.

These units control power stations; flight control systems, military equipment and nautical equipment. If any of you are interested in a career in IT, go into security. There is a tremendous need and a lack of good people.
