I was just wondering if anyone has found a backdoor through Multiple users.

I see stupid people... They're everywhere... And they're all using Windows!

...then remove the Multiple Users prefs from the Preferences folder.
Or, if you have access to Control Panels, use the File Sharing control panel to change the password (stupid, doesn't require verification of old password )
Or... etc.
There are heaps of ways in. Oh well. I won't post them all here.
