Deliberately hidden backdoor account in several AMX (HARMAN Professional) devices used by whitehouse, CIA, NSA, for communications

In the funniest disclosure I’ve read in some time (well, it would be if it wasn’t so terribly dangerous), it turns out that these teleconferencing units had a hardcoded admin account with extra permissions built in with username BlackWidow. In the first “fix”, AMX basically changed the user to Batman. Poor show.
