burn - Overwrite Files



Vulnerability

    burn

Affected

    MacOS

Description

    A program  called Burn  is available  all over  the Internet. Burn
    will delete any file by writing 0s over the file. It will do  this
    regardless  of  At  Ease,  On  Guard, MacPrefect, file permissions
    etc.  etc.   You can also  manually enable the  shift command  (to
    turn  off  all  extensions  at  startup,  including any protection
    extensions) with a  simple program.   With extensions off  you can
    delete the on guard prefs or whatever to get full access.

Solution

    Huh, I don't know.  Send mail to Mac people.
