What is a “Back Door” for Malware?

Back Doors: escaping unscathed

Have you seen the movies with the teenage boy climbing out the top floor window of his girlfriend’s bedroom? It’s dark. A twig snaps. Shortly after, Daddy comes out the front door with a shot gun?  We route for the fellow to escape unharmed and true love to prevail. I always picture this scenario when talking about Back Doors.
