Nedry's Backdoor (S/F)

Disambiguation Links – Computer Backdoors (C/N)

The system backdoor was a computer command by Dennis Nedry. He utilized it to deactivate select areas of Jurassic Park’s computer systems, (electronic door locks, certain dinosaur paddock fences, security cameras and the tour program) for a period of eighteen minutes. The failures present in the power system would be an effective distraction to his co-workers as he left the park’s control room, stole examples of all fifteen dinosaur species found in the embryo storage unit, and drove in a gas-powered jeep to the East Dock, where he would rendezvous with fellow agents Miles Chadwick and Nima Cruz.
