Security Alert for Allwinner sun8i

   
SecurityThe Security Alert for Allwinner sun8i thread on Armbian forums is interesting.

found via The Register article This is what a root debug backdoor in a Linux kernel looks like. Interestingly enough this backdoor was created by Allwiner itself, and might exist on other Allwinner devices. Look for the file /proc/sunxi_debug/sunxi_debug, if it exists, try to write "rootmydevice" to it. Simple enough.
