Access FileVault sparseimages via ssh
Authored by: zojas on Mar 04, '04 04:12:17PM

don't even think about doing that!! your password could be saved in your shell's history file and written in plaintext in the history file.

of course, since we're talking about mounting a filevault home here, you would probably be safe, but there's no reason to get used to leaking password's into your shell's history file.
