This is no backdoor. These account images are Gravatars and on you can read more about how it works. The only information that is sent out is a hash value.
Theoretically, the hash value of the email address you are using could be the same as the hash value of a totally different email address someone else is using.

Having said that, I now need to say this:
Most welcome to WordPress trac. This is where we follow-up the development and bug fixing for WordPress core. It is not meant for user support. If you want to continue discussing this topic, then that's better done over at

Further: If you some day should become aware of a real backdoor, then PLEASE don't post about it publicly, since that might raise the risks for everyone involved. Instead use HackerOne. There are links and more information on the start pages of this system.
