FireWire has long been known as a back door into Mac OS RAM. Now Passware has a kit for extracting system passwords from Mac OS X over FireWire: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/passware-proves-mac-os-lion-insecure-revealing-login-passwords-in-minutes-126166663.html >The security risk is easy to overcome by simply turning off the computer >instead of putting it to sleep, and disabling the "Automatic Login" >setting. This way, passwords will not be present in memory and cannot be >recovered. Note that www.lostpassword.com, Passware's web site, is blocked by DOI Web filters as Malware, so be careful out there. I wonder if Thunderbolt presents the same issues? -- Rex _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
