Near 49:50 in lecture "Reviving a computer system of 25 years ago - 
Wirth, 2014", https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXY78gPMvl0 , a similar 
question was asked, with Prof. WIrth answering 
"... no side doors and no back doors."

As anticipated, cyberattacks have been in the news recently.

Criminal interference is as much a concern in science and 
engineering as in banking and commerce.

Sooner or later, the Skulski machines might attract serious interest.
