Odds and Ends: FileVault security issue

FileVault security issue The SecureMac website has issued a security advisory on Panther's FileVault feature. The advisory notes that although a FileVault-encrypted home directory is itself secure, the unencrypted home directory used to create the encrypted copy is not "securely erased," so it is possible for someone to access data from the "deleted" original directory.
