Never really liked FileVault on the mac but the news that its encryption has been cracked just shows that whenever you can get your hand on a computer… you OWN it. Don’t really trust your encryption scheme as bullet proof safe. It will hit you right back in your face.
Want security? Don’t leave your laptop alone! Don’t put sensitive information on the computer. Don’t trust technology with important stuff. That’s the only way to ensure that confidential information doesn’t get compromised.
Well, but we are living in the XXI century aren’t we? Yes… but that is also the reason why we have all these security problems. For every advance we have we also have thousands of people trying to scrutinize those advances and not all of them are white hats.
