"...one workaround is to 'place the appliances behind a firewall and block any incoming traffic (local and Internet) to port 22,...'" A solution that can't scale. It just shifts the problem to another layer of the perimeter. And when a vulnerability is found there?

re: Barracuda Security Equipment Contains Hardcoded Backdoors
This is an age old problem, that refuses to go away. From SCADA systems to VPN hardware boxes, the manufacturers just hardcode User ID's / passwords and integrate it with so many applications that it is impossible to change the default passwords. All their customers should reject Barracuda's silly argument, that they need those accounts to remotely troubleshoot. If I were a CTO, whose organization uses Barracuda devices, I wouldn't be comfortable with their recommendations.
