On Mac OS X 10.7.3



Apparently, with the latest Lion security update, Apple has accidentally turned on a debug log file outside of the encrypted area that stores the user’s password in clear text!!

Looks like an Apple programmer left (by accident?) a debug flag in the most recent version of Mac OS X 10.7.3.

If you apply the latest OS X Lion update, it turns on a system-wide debug log file that contains the login passwords of every user who has logged in since the update was applied. AND... The passwords are stored in clear text!!
