@EricG we may be talking about different things. FIrst of all I'm not talking about a company selling a product to a customer that has an undocumented admin account, I'm talking all internally. Also I don't think it's right to just say it's an admin account - anyone could have an admin account and that's a rather generic way of saying it. I'm saying the IT has the same usernmame/password to an admin account on all machines they could be responsible for, and the end user of the machine isn't told the password to this account. What would you call it? You wouldn't just say it's a plain admin acnt

Right I'm just saying it's bs to claim that most companies don't have computers where the end users get administrative rights.

"Nearly all corporations I have worked with have the IT department own the Administrator accounts and functions for all workstations and servers in the environment, whereas the end users just have unprivileged "normal" user accounts" are you telling me that most corporations you've seen don't let end users run accounts with administrative privillages. That's rediciouls. I guess it depends on the work, maybe if a grocery store has 1 computer that just is used to the browse the web it's ok, but how would a team of devs / qa get work done without admin accounts?

@EricG maybe it goes by a different name but what I mean is having an account with administrative privillages that IT know the password to so they can log on.

-1 Is this spam? The answer given has zero information and just reflects on your personal experiences. What is the link for, it seems like spam to me?
