A vulnerability with the screensaver password lock
Authored by: Aristotle on Jun 06, '04 05:30:17PM

Admin users on OSX are not quite the same as XP Administrator users which is analogous too the wheel group. I agree that you should only give out Admin access to trusted users but if you are trusting them with with sensitive data in a corporate environment already, giving them admin access on their own machine is no big deal. Admin on OSX is more like Power user group under XP except you can escalate to root through sudo.
