What will be next although there has always been back doors everywhere since I can remember.

 

I think in my case since most of my computers in use are 10 years old I have no need for concern at this time although will one day have to breakout the icores I have.

If they are ten years old then probably anybody who put back doors in them when they were newish has forgotten where the keys are hidden.
