Re: [Full-disclosure] Barracuda backdoor

Let's be careful though: just because your system stopped working
doesn't mean it has a backdoor. It could have been implemented as simply
a periodic "phone home for updates" which received some type of
"license expired" message. A remote kill switch, for sure, but not
necessarily the same as a back door.

For now I have reports from people who do not want to expose them but
claim that Barracuda people can freely log in into their systems but
never asked for password etc.

This time I have no proof etc. Just I get lot of different pieces of
feedback in private.
