What is a backdoor? The dangers and methods

A backdoor is a method, often secret, of bypassing normal authentication or encryption in a computer system, a product, or an embedded device (e.g. a home router), or its embodiment, e.g. as part of a cryptosystem, an algorithm, a chipset, or a “homunculus computer” —a tiny computer-within-a-computer (such as that found in Intel’s AMT technology).[1][2] Backdoors are often used for securing remote access to a computer, or obtaining access to plaintext in cryptographic systems. The backdoor may be used to gain access to passwords, delete data on hard drives, or transfer information within the cloud.  By Wikipedia
