Why? There's absolutely no way to secure a system when untrusted
people have physical access to the computer. Computers with
confidential information must be behind locked doors. As has been
repeated in this thread many times. There is no other solution. It's
much more trivial cracking a system when one doesn't use the claimed
autofs bug.

It's of no use to lock you doors when you have a tank sized hole in
your wall. 

#!/usr/bin/perl -w -- Ari Makela <hauva@iki.fi> - http://www.iki.fi/hauva/
use strict;my $j=Japh->new();$j->print();package Japh;sub new{my $c=shift; 
my $s={j=>'rekcaH lreP rehtonA tsuJ'};bless $s,$c;return $s;}sub print{my 
$s=shift;$s->{j}=reverse($s->{j});print $s->{j},"\n";}1;
