This is Called Auto Login

To Infosecurity Magazine, this is called "AUTO LOGIN", not "BACKDOOR".
Infosecurity isn't really sure either, but the breathtakingly simple technology tweak appears to have been coded as a backdoor to Windows XP for administrators who are having password difficulties.

I'm surprise with Infosecurity Magazine post on "TuCows review shows how to start WinXP without a password" after watching the video on Butterscotch tutorial. This isn't a hidden command in XP. Anyone can simply issue the command and do so (with administrator priviledge).
control userpasswords2
My point is, how can InforSec Mag never know this?
