Fixing Y2K or Opening a Private Door to Company Data?

from the paranoia dept

Over the past week or so there have been a number of reports and warnings on this topic: apparently there’s a new fear that the folks fixing Y2K problems are installing trapdoors, so they’ll have access to the computers at a later date. And, for all those Y2K fixers who hadn’t thought of that before? You still have 150 days or so to install your own trap door. Get busy.
