Submission + - Hidden Backdoor Discovered on HP MSA2000 Arrays (

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.
