A vulnerability with the screensaver password lock
Authored by: risc_abacus on Jun 05, '04 07:45:06AM

I suppose I should jump on the bandwagon as to why this really isn't a vulnerability... I don't think Apple ever advertised or even sanctions using the screen saver as a secure method of locking your screen from peeking eyes. The only correct method of doing this... is to enable Fast User Switching and return to the Login Window. This method gives you the effect of keeping unwanted eyes off your work while keeping your apps open.
