Re: Warning: Cisco RW community backdoor.

There are some folks who think this only lets you change the contact
string.

This is false; it lets you change several strings.  However, they appear
to all be informational in nature, not operational.

I think the information leakage point is a bigger deal than the information
change point, although you could confuse a sufficiently clueless 
administrator by changing the location information.
