FaceTime Security Hole Easily Fixed

FaceTime for Mac, released just yesterday, already has what some call a "security hole," but not to worry, it's a simply fix. Apparently one a user has logged into FaceTime on their Mac, their Apple ID and password can be altered from the application by anyone with access to the computer while FaceTime is running. Harsh! Unless you understand basic security for anything you own or run, ever.

What someone having access to your computer means is someone either hacking into your computer, access with which they wouldn't bother hitting up your FaceTime for, or someone literally walking up to your computer while you're not there. That's silly. The original warning for this security risk came from German site MacWelt, but they're sure to remedy. Let's all remind ourselves never to walk away from our computers anyway, just incase.
