     My wife, a therapist, has been required to use computer equipment and file encription that is HIPAA compliant for medical privacy issues. She was told by her trainers that the mac had little to no security and was easily cracked. I was surprised and I told her the mac was pretty secure. I googled teh issue.

     It would seem, from the following link, that I may have been very wrong. Is it really this easy to get into a stolen mac? Can the system password be so easily circumvented? If this is true, even I, who know next to nothing about computer programming, could hack a mac and get to all the data.
