The government must love them

from here

While this article suggests that Cisco's patching of it's 7th back door in a year is a good thing, I can't help but suspect there are still more. Normally you think of backdoors as being a rare occurrence, but Cisco has clearly deviated from that norm and it makes me think that their backdoors are like rats - if you see 1, there are 20 more you don't know about.

Vesselin Bontchev comically observed that if your house had 7 backdoors there wouldn't be room for walls.
