Beverly Perdue left a backdoor in her Web site.
The Democratic gubernatorial candidate's programmers mistakenly linked several times on an issues page to the back-end site where her staff posts new releases.
In short: Anyone who finds the links could write on her campaign site.
"Welcome to the maintenance pages," read the linked page, created by Perdue's programmer, Liberty Concepts.
After Dome alerted the Perdue campaign Monday night, they removed the links before any would-be hackers took the opportunity to make mischief.
The links were in footnotes on Perdue's "Small Business First Approach" page posted Friday. They were removed a half-hour after Dome called the campaign.
Earlier: Perdue's programmers' Google search error.
