Windows OS Backdoors in ADVAPI.DLL driver?



  • Has anyone researched the claim that Microsoft OS products going far back as 1999 contains multiple back doors in the  ADVAPI.DLL driver….Can anyone confirm this?

    If this is true, is it possible to devise a firewall configuration to deal with it?

    From what little I've heard/read about it, it wasn't a backdoor per-se, but a Key that was trusted to run/install. So they still had to have a way to get the bits onto the PC, but once there, it would be trusted and wouldn't prompt as unsigned code.

    There really wasn't enough info out there to say much of anything for certain though, it could also be explained other ways besides actually belonging to the NSA.
