A security issue has been reported in Apple Mac OS X, which can be exploited by malicious people with physical access to bypass certain security restrictions.
The security issue is caused due to the debug switch being enabled within FileVault when using "Legacy FileVault". This may lead to users' password being saved in DEBUGLOG in plain text and can be exploited to read the password via FireWire target disk mode.
Successful exploitation requires that OS X is upgraded from an older version and uses the "Legacy FileVault" feature.
The security issue is reported in version 10.7.3.
