    Juniper Networks finds backdoor code in its firewalls

    One of the reasons corporate users and the privacy-minded rely on VPNs is to control access to their networks and (hopefully) not expose secrets over insecure connections. Today Juniper Networks revealed that some of its products may not have been living up to that standard, after discovering "unauthorized code" in the software that runs on its NetScreen firewalls during a code review. Pointed out by security researcher "The Grugq," the backdoor has been present since late 2012 and can only be fixed by upgrading to a new version of software just released today.
