Default Allied Telesis – no backdoor in devices

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1257052.html

Quote:
Allied Telesis denies charges that it has put backdoors into all of its products. Recently, the Japanese manufacturer of network equipment accidentally published an internal support document containing information about a "backdoor password for Allied Telesis devices." Now, the company says the description is misleading and that the tools it published merely serve to reset the administrator password, which it says is a common function.
