Business Terms and Jargon Explained

What is Backdoor

A backdoor is a hole in your software that allows people to gain access to your computer. Unlike vulnerabilities, which are not intentional, backdoors are created on purpose. This can be done by a computer programmer to check the system, or by a hacker or a virus to make it easier for people to illegally gain access to your computer.
