How can this only just be surfacing? It has been known for at least 8 years that Barracuda appliances have backdoors, and I personally verified it with the unit I used to run quite a while ago.

As for blocking ssh; although my knowledge is admittedly out of date (thanks mostly to finding out about the backdoor all those years ago, and subsequently avoiding Barracuda completely) the ssh access on my unit ran on the SMTP port with custom NAT entries for IPs at Barracuda Central. If the unit is acting as the public spam filter, as I'd expect it to be, then Port 25 is going to open to all.


In other news; I'm writing a rather large entry about my Christmas/New Year went that should be posted reasonably soon. Hopefully it won't be out of date by the time it appears. :)
