NOT a vulnerability with the screensaver password lock

Yeah, there's a blurb on MacFixIt.com about this too, and it's completely untrue. Only the user who is logged in currently (who 'owns' the screensaver) and admin users can bypass the screen saver. This hint is FUD.

Is this true for *networked* user IDs in addition to local? I know it"s not an exposure for local IDs, but this hint is specific to remote IDs.

What! You're saying the logged in user, who owns the screensaver can log in with his own password? Why that would mean anyone who knows my password could log in. Eureka! I've found another vulnerability!
